Health & Human Service Planning
The Victorian population is rapidly growing and the burden of chronic disease is increasing. Health services must therefore deliver care in new ways and in challenging environments. This provides health services with opportunities for improvement and innovation in delivering the services that meet people’s needs.
Our experience in developing service plans, models of care and strategic plans for metropolitan, regional and rural public health services gives us unique insights into these opportunities.
We understand the interlocking roles of hospitals and community-based services in the delivery of health care and the management of patients’ care pathways. We understand the complex interactions between hospital and primary health care providers, and recognise the patient benefits that flow from better relationships and smoother pathways.
