|Insights into the utilisation of health services in Australia based on
linked administrative data. Occasional Papers New Series Number 9|
This project, initiated in 1996, is a first step towards transforming isolated health data sets (such as the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) data, Pharmaceutical Benefits Schedule (PBS) data and hospital morbidity data (HMD)) into information that may be used to inform policy.
|The Ageing Australian Population and Future Health Costs: 1996-2051. Occasional Papers: New Series Number 7|
This study projects future health costs attributable to the progressive ageing of the Australian population based on extensive administrative data on medical practitioner visits (to GPs and specialists), prescription drug consumption and hospital admissions. Scenarios based on these cost data were applied to projections of the Australian population by age and sex out to 2051 — by which time the transient effects of the 'baby-boom' cohort will have worked their way through the system.

health care system:
the role of government. Occasional Papers: New Series Number 1|

|An Overview of Health Status, Health Care and Public Health in Australia. Occasional Papers Series Number 5.|
Australia is now much better placed to describe patterns of health and health inequity than it was even five years ago. This capacity needs to be further developed especially in moving away from more traditional health indicators such as mortality, morbidity and risk factors to other dimensions of health such as community capacity, and locational disadvantage. There also needs to be more emphasis on developing process or intermediate indicators for strategies such as intersectoral action and healthy public policy goals such as improved food supply.
