Aims: To develop data linkage machine learning methodology for external laboratory data linkage to pseudo-anonymised clinical records.


  1. Link APHA and IDEXX laboratory testing for canine leptospirosis to pseudo-anonymised VetCompass electronic patient records
  2. Evaluate machine learning process performance for data linkage.
