About this Unit
This unit will provide an understanding of the key elements of the National Health Reform in Australia. There will be a strong focus on the management of delivering public hospital services under the evolving reform. The unit will cover the establishment of service level agreements, outlining the purchaser – provider model and exploring its impacts and deliverables. The unit will also explore how performance should be monitored and reported. Finally, it will examine the clinical and business governance models that facilitate implementation of such major reforms. Links between quality and performance will also be explored.
