Research - Bettering the Evaluation and Care of Health (BEACH)

The BEACH program continuously collects information about the:

  • patients seen;
  • reasons people seek medical care;
  • problems managed; and
  • treatments provided in general practice in Australia.

It uses a cross-sectional, paper based data collection system developed over the past twenty years in the Department of General Practice, University of Sydney. Data generated is used by researchers, government and industry.
