Monash Partners Data
Sharing Agreement
and Principles

Monash Partners has co-developed a Data Sharing Agreement and accompanying data-sharing Principles to guide the activity of data sharing for research and healthcare improvement across our Partner organisations.

Access to data, for healthcare improvement and research, provides our greatest opportunity to unlock the value in this data and benefit the public through improvements in clinical care, prevention, screening and treatment.

The Data Sharing Agreement and Principles aim to establish a data sharing relationship to facilitate safe, lawful and appropriate sharing of health data across the Monash Partners' organisations. They provide a consistent, thorough and informed approach to decisions about the sharing of data.

They do not dictate a particular process that must be followed, nor restrict an organisation from using its own data policies. The Principles acknowledge that data usage is made in the context of a partner’s core business requirements, which include support of research.

The Agreement and Principles support the streamlining of efficient data access and sharing across our Partner organisations, and align with the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), ‘Principles for accessing and using publicly funded data for
health research’.
