About the HSRAANZ

Founded in 2001, the Health Services Research Association of Australia & New Zealand (HSRAANZ) supports and promotes the conduct and dissemination of applied research to improve the delivery and organisation of health services in Australia and New Zealand. With a wide range of individual and corporate members from universities, research centres, government departments, independent government agencies, and consumer groups the Association bridges the gap between research and policy, as well as reflecting consumer issues. We also have two special interest groups, focussing on Emerging Researchers and Indigenous Health Services Research, both of which have a prominent role at our main conference. [read more]

    HSRAANZ Webinar – Primary Care Stepping Up (part 2): a story of the early adopters – 15 October 2018

    Drawing on a recently completed report for the NZ Productivity Commission on primary care innovation in New Zealand, this webinar on 15 October, from Dr Lesley Middleton and Phoebe Dunn will explore how the environment for primary care has developed since the introduction of the Primary Health Care Strategy in 2001, before going on to discuss the current policy settings and enablers and barriers that exist today.

    Linking to Helen Parker’s HSRAANZ webinar in September, Lesley and Phoebe will use the recent expansion of the Health Care Home model of care across NZ as an illustrative example of some of the bigger themes at play, and to tell the story of an innovation that has emerged and evolved from the middle of the health system.

    Webinar Designing Evidence-Informed and Cost-Effective Primary Health Services – 17 October 2017

    Commissioning of health services is a relatively new healthcare concept in Australia and there is limited experience to guide commissioners, such as Primary Health Networks (PHNs) on methods which facilitate research evidence-informed procurement and commissioning. Reviews to date have identified the challenges of identifying a single preferred commissioning model and that commissioning impacts are highly context-dependent.

    This WEBINAR by Professor Jonathan Karnon, Jade Hart and Kenneth Lo will discuss the commissioning approach of PHNs and the challenges of assessing the cost effectiveness of primary health services. Using residential aged care as a case study, we will also present an evidence-informed framework that seeks to recognise the many complex variables, such as intricate funding models, clients with diverse needs, and presence of numerous stakeholders with different roles and interests.
