PHRN Strategic Plan

Following an independent review of the PHRN in 2014 which highlighted the importance of a strategic vision for data linkage in Australia, the PHRN undertook a strategic planning process in 2015-16.

The strategic planning process allowed stakeholders the opportunity to raise issues, discuss their ideas and put forward a point of view e.g. via online surveys, submissions, interviews and group feedback sessions. The planning process was an iterative process where the PHRN Board's preliminary views around the vision, mission, roles and future direction were tested with PHRN opinion leaders, then progressively validated through broader stakeholder engagement.

The PHRN Strategic Plan 2017-2026 was endorsed by the PHRN Board on 17 June 2016.
