The Registry of Senior Australians (ROSA)

Improving Care and Outcomes in Aged Care
The Registry of Senior Australians (ROSA)
Project Status: In progress
Project administered by: SAHMRI

The Registry of Senior Australians (ROSA) is a nationwide aged care and health care data linkage platform and outcomes monitoring system developed by SAHMRI.

Our project will create a 'big data' platform through extension and expansion of ROSA infrastructure to keep pace with emerging issues (e.g. COVID-19) and continue our ground-breaking research on key, and currently unknown, residential aged care impacts with new datasets (immunisation, rehabilitation and social welfare data).

With our project partners, we will embed ROSA into routine aged care monitoring and build the sector's digital health literacy. Project outcomes will position ROSA as the only national data solution for evidence-based policy and practice change in residential aged care.
