The Health Data Research Network (HDRN) has launched the Data Access Support Hub (DASH), a one-stop shop for requesting access to data from multiple provincial, territorial and pan-Canadian sources.

This initiative is made possible through the through the Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR), which is a collection of funding partnerships between the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), provinces and territories, philanthropic organizations, academic institutions, and health charities.

By offering a single access point for multi-jurisdictional data requests, DASH simplifies the way researchers request data access and provides a clear point of contact for ongoing support throughout the process.
Researchers can now sign up for a free DASH account and view datasets which are available for request through the platform. In this first phase, requests from SPOR SUPPORT Units and Networks, as well as recipients of Innovative Clinical Trials (iCT) grants, will be prioritized.
