Foundation Research


The Australian Centre for Health Services Innovation (AusHSI) is a leading health services research, consultancy and training organisation.

Our work aligns closely with the mission of health foundations. As a trusted academic partner, we care deeply about gaining the highest health benefits for patients from every dollar spent.

We have a strong track in building knowledge and strengthening innovation capacity. Our team of leading health economists, epidemiologists, statisticians, and implementation researchers is experienced in developing, overseeing and facilitating competitive funding rounds including Government departments and Hospital foundations.

We can help by:

  • Providing advice and expertise around research funding allocation and support – setting priorities for funding rounds and ensuring only the highest value research initiatives which offer the most significant improvements to health services are supported.
  • Quantifying benefits for patients through independent and rigorous evaluations – these provide powerful findings to address key strategic foundation goals and secure additional funding support.
  • Engaging and motivating clinician researchers to undertake high quality health services research – delivering training and ongoing mentoring to build capacity and a culture of innovation.
