SAGE – Secondary Analysis to Generate Evidence

Evidence informed policy and practice through optimal use of data

SAGE (Secondary Analysis to Generate Evidence) is a collaborative data repository platform that connects stakeholders through secondary use of data. Research data, community service data, and administrative data related to health and social well-being is managed and shared through SAGE. SAGE increases the value of data by providing the infrastructure, processes and governance to bring stakeholders together to use data in new ways and inform social policy and practice.

The SAGE team offers a broad array of services that support data management, secondary use of data and knowledge mobilization.
