Professor Elliott is one of the world’s leading researchers in the use of technology for evidence synthesis. He developed the Living Evidence model: high quality systematic reviews and guidelines that are kept continually up to date with the latest research. This model dramatically improves the currency of high-quality evidence and is now being adopted worldwide, including by the World Health Organization and other major guideline groups.
Prof Elliott was the founding Chair of the Australian Living Evidence Consortium and established the Australian National COVID-19 Clinical Evidence Taskforce, both based at Cochrane Australia within Monash University’s School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine.
Prof Elliott is also the co-founder and CEO of Covidence, a non-profit technology company that provides the most widely used software platform for systematic reviews globally. In 2017 Prof Elliott was the recipient of the Australian Health Minister’s Award for Excellence in Health and Medical Research.
