Health Systems & Services About Us

Our research aims to enhance the design, organisation and delivery of health services and health systems. Our researchers are currently engaged in projects to improve quality & safety, governance and reform, financing and economic evaluation of health services from primary care to tertiary care in Australia and overseas.

We are committed to research that strengthens health system capacities for reducing the disease burden within Australia and globally by enhancing the quality of health systems and service from within.

Coming from a diverse set of complementary disciplinary backgrounds, we use translational research to impact on healthcare practices and outcomes.
