AusHSI assists with or oversee competitive funding rounds on behalf of health service clients. By identifying and recommending funding for individual projects to improve health services, we ensure:
- data can be used to signal an improvement of services by cost, quality or safety outcome
- projects are novel, scientifically rigorous and feasible within given timeframes
- projects align with strategic organisational priorities.
As part of these activities, we provide ongoing mentoring and support for clinician researchers, thereby building knowledge and strengthening innovation capacity.
