This report details the findings of a study commissioned by the Australian Health Research Alliance (AHRA) in 2018 as part of its objective to increase data use by healthcare professionals and other stakeholders to improve health outcomes. Drawing primarily from survey and interview data from 62 custodians and users of primary care data used for secondary purposes in Australia, the study explored the primary care-related datasets considered available in Australia and their data linkage status; the quality frameworks being used to assess primary care datasets; and the stakeholder perceptions of enablers and barriers to strategically building benefit and capacity of primary care data use
