The VAHI Data Request Hub is a simple way to request access to Victorian health data.

Subject to resource availability, VAHI will process and/or coordinate all requests, including for hospital data, mental health and alcohol and other drugs data, queries relating to existing VAHI reports, and requests for new reports.

How to make a request

Submitting a request through the Hub is easy. Click the ‘Request’ button above and fill out the required information. You will receive an immediate email confirmation, then a member of our team will be in touch.

All requests progress through the following stages:

  • • Step 1 – Clarifying your requirements
  • • Step 2 – Processing your request
  • • Step 3 – Preparing your answer

If you create a Hub log in, you can use the ’Track’ button to access additional features including live progress updates, request history and direct communication with Hub staff.

You have the option to submit a request without creating a login. However, you will only be able to reach us by replying to our confirmation email.

Cost recovery

Please note that VAHI operates under a cost recovery model for the Data Request Hub, so the service can continue sustainably. Not all data requests are subject to a fee for service under our cost recovery model; however, most requests from any agency external to the department – including requests relating to contracted departmental work – will attract a fee for service. If your request is in scope for cost recovery, a member of the team will contact you to discuss it.
