Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject you will develop a specialist working knowledge of: health data standards; health data collection; government, insurance and other sectoral health data reporting requirements; and the relationships between these and health service measurement and financing. Models of Activity-Based Funding, including case mix-based systems, and their underpinning reporting and analysis requirements are studied. The pivotal role of the Health Information Manager within all of these arrangements is addressed. You will develop an understanding of the policy and funding frameworks for public and private health services and supporting clinical costing and modelling methods. You will develop competency in health data analytics, and analysis and reporting of hospital and health service utilisation statistics and published health data. Case studies inform your learning of these concepts and your analyses of morbidity, mortality, clinical, productivity and health service data.
