Australian National Diabetes Audit (ANDA)The Australian Government has been funding ANDA since its introduction in 1998. The purpose of ANDA is to undertake the collection, collation, analysis, audit and reporting of clinical diabetes and patient education and self-care data in specialist diabetes centres across all states and territories in Australia.
The data collected is used by specialist diabetes centres to benchmark their practice processes and patient outcome data against that of their peers and provide cross-sectional data on the clinical status of individuals with diabetes attending these services.
Data from the project, collected on a calendar year basis, is also used in diabetes publications prepared by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.

2013-14 Final Report
2014-15 Final Report
Diabetes Care Project (DCP)The Diabetes Care Project was a three-year pilot programme which analysed new models of health care delivery for adults with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
The evaluation of the Diabetes Care Project found that improved information technology and continuous quality improvement processes were not on their own sufficient to improve health outcomes. However, combining these changes with a new funding model did make a significant difference. The report also found that the funding model used in the pilot was not cost-effective and would need to be further researched and refined.
Data from the DCP is only available in aggregated form as presented in the Evaluation Report.
