The Policy Action Network is a project in the Human Sciences Research Council which aims to connect government policy processes with research, data and stakeholder knowledge. As part of this work we are interested in how government decision-making could benefit from more open forms of data sharing and reuse. This raises a number of questions: What are possible pathways to decision-support? How can enhancing and publishing meta-data help? What would we like to see in data governance practices, standards and business models? This talk will explore early stages of a project to develop a health systems evidence map and initial thoughts around the use of contracting data, and some ideas on how these could be taken forward.
