AHTA is dedicated to:
(AHSRI) is a major research facility at the University of Wollongong, established in May 2011. AHSRI brings together eight research centres, and is part of the Sydney Business School (Faculty of Business).
AHSRI aims to improve the management and provision of health and community services in Australia by achieving greater equity in resource distribution, fairer access to services, better continuity within and across the health and community care sectors, and the use of evidence to assist management decision-making.
In addition to producing robust academic output, the products of the Institute include practical and expert advice to a variety of government and non-government agencies and interest groups.
The Australian Centre for Health Services Innovation (AusHSI) was established to address health system challenges with multidisciplinary research teams and clinical engagement.
AusHSI encourages Queensland-based health services professionals to do research in partnership with academics, and to disseminate to policy makers and politicians. They fund projects that improve health services, offer a range of training and skills development, and undertake consulting and advisory services that complement our mission. AusHSI drives knowledge translation to improve decision making.
APHCRI, the Australian Primary Health Care Research Institute is funded through the Australian Government Department of Health to commission research. The majority of the research is conducted through the APHCRI Network.
APHCRI supports and develops primary health care research which is driven by the health care needs of the Australian community and can directly inform the development and implementation of health policies and services (and vice versa).
The Centre for Health Economics has been at the forefront of health economics teaching and research in Australia for more than 19 years. As one of the largest concentrations of senior health economists in Australia, it has a strong track record of health economics research, teaching and community service. The overriding goal of the Centre is to undertake and promote high quality health economics research and teaching activities, with both a national and international focus.
The Centre for Health Economics Research and Evaluation provides a critical mass of health economists and health services researchers who have developed a national and international reputation for excellence in research and teaching, a reputation for timely and high quality policy advice and support, a research program that is both policy relevant and concerned with issues at the forefront of the sub-discipline of health economics, and a capacity to nurture and develop research staff.
CHERE’s research strategy is aimed at progressing this through four areas of research activity: conceptual, methodological, applied and policy based research. Whilst these distinctions are useful for planning and review purposes, there is considerable overlap between the different research goals in specific projects.
CHERE has extensive experience in evaluating health services and programs, and in assessing the effectiveness of policy initiatives. The Centre provides policy support to all levels of the health care system, through both formal and informal involvement in working parties, committees, and by undertaking commissioned projects.
The Centre is an intellectual leader in its field in Australia through its work with linked medical and health data and the evaluation of health services, patient safety, surgical care and pharmaco-epidemiology.
It supports research through the creation and maintenance of data and technical infrastructure, facilitation of an extensive network of collaborators and provision of training opportunities to staff and students.
Information exchange is the core of a safe, efficient and effective health system. The Centre for Health Systems and Safety Research (CHSSR) conducts innovative research aimed at understanding and improving the way in which health care delivery and patient outcomes are enhanced through the effective use and exchange of information.
The Centre for Health Policy undertakes evaluations of health policy at international, national, state and local levels. The centre is multi-disciplinary bringing together clinicians, economists, implementation scientists, lawyers, managers, psychologists, sociologists and political scientists. The Centre for Health Policy has four streams:
CREBP undertakes research about the processes and implementation of Evidence-Based Medicine, in order to more intelligently and efficiently close the gaps between best available evidence and current clinical practice. The effective integration of research into practice contributes to the health and healthcare of Australians.
Flinders Health Care Management, South Australia 's is the premier provider of post-graduate education for leadership in health administration.
Courses are designed for managers at all levels who work in the health and aged care sectors or related industries, both public and private. Objectives is to provide people with a high level of analytical and conceptual skills, as well as practical knowledge, so they can succeed in today's complex hospital and health care environment. To achieve an adult learning approach which combines academic teaching, interactive exercises related to the student's own work setting, and teaching sessions with industry leaders.
Health Services and Practice (HSP) engages in internationally competitive research that has high impact on policy and practice. It is a key research strength in the Health Futures research theme in the UTS Research strategy 2010 - 2015.
HSP is located in the Faculty of Health and has interdisciplinary research expertise in nursing, midwifery, complementary medicine, public health, child and family health, and health services management.
The Health Services Research Unit is interested in the organisation and delivery of health services and systems. It works to generate new knowledge to promote effectiveness, efficiency, equity and quality in health services, and to transfer this knowledge into improved policy and clinical practice. It undertakes multi-disciplinary research in collaboration with researchers within and beyond the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine.
The Health Services Research Centre strives for excellence and relevance in health services research
The HSRC undertakes quality health services research which draws on inter-disciplinary perspectives, advances knowledge and theory, seeks to inform health policy and practice, and which aims to enhance the health status and well-being of all New Zealanders.
The Menzies Centre for Health Policy (MCHP) is the leading independent scholarly voice on health policy in Australia. It brings together scholars and practitioners with broad expertise in health policy, economics and health services research to produce high-quality analyses of current health policy issues, deliver annual public seminars, education programs and undertake comprehensive research projects. MCHP’s research program addresses five themes that include policies for health futures, value in health care, serious and continuing illness, equity and governance.
The Health Policy Management (HPM) team is a leading multidisciplinary group with considerable and widely recognised expertise across health policy and economics. HPM’s prime purpose is to develop capacity through research, teaching and knowledge transfer activities with the aim of improving health care system performance.
Its educational programs focus on expanding knowledge of policy and management issues within the context of health care policy and provision. HPM students come from across Australia and from around the world including experienced health service personnel from a variety of areas.
It offers courses in health administration and health information management among others.
Its research in health systems contributes to policy formulation, prioritisation and evaluation. It works at all geographical levels, from WA-based research to national decision-making through to international collaborations with leading researchers in their respective fields.
