Research requests

We work with NSW Health staff, external researchers and partner organisations to undertake research in partnership with eHealth NSW.

eHealth NSW uses an operating model, including key criteria and principles, with consideration on value and benefits for the system, as well as how research could be translated into practice. With these considerations, eHealth NSW endorses and partners with particular projects.

“What we are doing is coordinating, enabling, and providing standardised governance and reporting,” said Lachlan Rudd, Director of Data and Analytics, eHealth NSW.

For research-related enquiries, please contact EHNSW-Research@health.nsw.gov.au.

Research Project Eligibility Criteria

Research projects must meet the following criteria in order to be considered:

  • The research must add value and benefit the system.
  • The project must directly align with the priorities of eHealth NSW (eHealth Strategy for NSW Health, NSW Health Analytics Framework, NSW Health Strategic Priorities, and The Premier’s Priorities).
  • The application must demonstrate collaborative engagement and consultation with relevant networks and stakeholders where applicable (e.g. partner organisations, MOH, ACI, clinicians, Local ICT, Chief Information Officer, health service administrators, researchers, and consumers).
  • Completed feasibility trial and/or pilot project demonstrating value, before considering multi-site state-wide roll out and/or broad ICT integration.

eHealth NSW Endorsement

All applicants who require endorsement from eHealth NSW need to contact the Research Coordinator for project approval.

  • Prior to applying for any research grant, applicants should submit a request below in the “submit a request” section. Please attach a one-page project outline for review including what is requested from an eHealth perspective. The Research Coordinator will review the application and get in contact to provide feedback and next steps.

Application Process Overview

Submission of applications, review and reporting follows a standard process.

eHealth NSW Consultation Phase

  • Researcher contacts eHealth NSW
