Researchers who are interested in applying for access to linked data for cross-jurisdictional and multi-jurisdictional research projects should apply via the PHRN Online Application System. The system will allow you to:

  • use the one form to obtain approval from multiple jurisdictions;
  • submit your application to multiple jurisdictions simultaneously;
  • view approvals as they come in from data custodians and data linkage units;
  • share the application with multiple researchers for viewing and comments; and
  • manage all relevant documents in a central point.

For questions about the PHRN Online Application System please contact the PHRN Program Office on (08) 6488 8683 or by email.
