The Multi-Stage Median algorithm led to slight decreases in the count of Indigenous people in the WAACHS, WAHWSS and WALNA.
Comparisons by Lawrence and colleagues (2012) between the WAACHS and midwives data suggest that the Indigenous count in the midwives notification system would have been approximately 11 per cent higher had it been collected at the same time and in the same manner as the WAACHS.
It is difficult to quantify the extent to which the WAACHS has impacted on health and wellbeing outcomes overall.
Increasingly, however, through the work of the CRCAH, NHMRC and the WAACHS discussed in the paper, the growing body of Indigenous research shows that culturally responsive and inclusive methodologies and approaches to research which engage Aboriginal people as active partners in the research can result in greater uptake of research findings and greater capacity and knowledge of Aboriginal communities about the relevance and value of the research.
