The SPOR Canadian Data Platform (SPOR CDP) is the first initiative of HDRN Canada. It is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research – Canada's national health research funder – and contributions from provincial, territorial and pan-Canadian organizations.
SPOR CDP infrastructure supports improved access to data, automation of data analysis, and ongoing engagement with the public, patients, and Indigenous communities.
- Create a data access support system that helps navigate requests from two or more jurisdictions.
- Harmonize and validate definitions for chronic diseases and other key analytic variables
- Expand the sources and types of data and linkages available, including clinical and social data.
- Develop the technological infrastructure required to improve the data access request process as well as the documentation, storage, and re-use of algorithms and existing data.
- Create supports for advanced analytics and infrastructure for data collection and analysis.
- Establish strong partnerships with patients and the public and with Indigenous communities.
- Build strong governance and enable national coordination.
