Project Description

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the health system to rapidly adapt, most recently in the development and rollout of an evidence-based vaccination. ‘COVID-19 Tracker' is a Primary Care clinical data and analytics platform already developed by Pen CS that can identify patients who are due for vaccination, and/or booster, and very importantly record adverse reactions. This project will explore the acceptability and feasibility of using COVID-19 Tracker in General Practice by conducting research with general practice staff. This study aims to support a large-scale application in partnership with Pen CS through one of ARC Linkage, CRC-P or NHMRC (Partnership grant).
