Overview


An experienced statistician and data scientist, for more than a decade Sam has applied his biostatistical, data management and data science skills to important topics such as patient outcome measurement, classification development, longitudinal data analysis, patient trajectory modelling and patient and carer surveys. Sam was a core member of the team responsible for development of version 7 of the AR-DRG classification, using SAS and R on large datasets to model national public and private hospital data and develop recommendations for funding changes to reflect innovations in models of care. His knowledge of data linkage, data management and systems was crucial in working with AHSRIs IT team during the establishment of the Illawarra Health Information Platform (IHIP) and AHSRI’s DataManager system. 

Sam was statistician and data manager for the Palliative Care Outcomes Collaboration (PCOC) for over 10 years, where he developed data collections, managed the national longitudinal database, and working with IT providers across Australia to embed the data collection into clinical systems. He has developed an expert knowledge in the development of automated reporting processes and has been an enabler of the use of routinely collected clinician- and patient-reported outcome measures as change agents in health service development.

Sam now plays a key role with the electronic Persistent Pain Outcomes Collaboration (ePPOC) leading the analytical work of the collaboration.
