In February 2021, VAHI became a division of the new Victorian Department of Health, in order to play a larger role in supporting the department’s ambitious health reform agenda. 

The Centre for Victorian Data Linkage and the Health Services Data business area were also brought into VAHI, integrating health data, analytics and reporting into a single division to streamline the flow of information from collection to insight, so that we can better support decisions that can improve care for Victorian consumers.  

Our role covers data acquisition, analysis, reporting, and the ongoing transformation to digital insights. VAHI supports better decisions and meaningful improvements to safety, quality, oversight, and transparency in Victoria’s health services.
