For Researchers

Digital Health Research

The Agency is committed to evidence based policy and uses evidence from research for establishing and evaluating their programs. It's important to use research evidence to:

Developing a research strategy

The Agency's Research Programs team is developing a strategy to support the Agency application of research evidence. The research strategy will assist the Agency in:

  • Generating and locating the best available evidence
  • Ensuring an accountable and transparent approach to working with external researchers or agencies.

More information on the research strategy will be available in spring 2017.
