Since 2011, working in partnership with researchers, clinicians and policy makers, AusHSI has assisted organisations to:
- align research activities with strategic priorities
- develop a culture where learning, research and improvements are encouraged
- empower healthcare professionals to implement and sustain innovations
- identify high quality, novel research, and
- evaluate research outcomes to guide decision making and maximise investment.
We want to make a difference
AusHSI began as a partnership between Queensland Health, The Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, Queensland University of Technology and the University of Queensland.
Our founding partners recognised the important contribution AusHSI could make to creating a sustainable healthcare system. Australians spend roughly 10% of GDP on health services, and this amount is growing.
There is a need to curb growth in future spending and gain good value for money by reducing waste and harmful services.
We care deeply about gaining the highest health benefits for patients from every healthcare dollar spent.In pursuit of our vision, we seek out better and lower-cost ways to deliver health services and translate these into improved practice.
Our team includes internationally leading health economists, epidemiologists, statisticians, health service and implementation researchers and consultants. We share a commitment to seeking out new ideas, putting knowledge into practice and using resources wisely to accomplish more with less.
