HEALTH DATA ANALYSIS A

HIM4AHA

2020

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject students 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. Students develop an understanding of the policy and funding frameworks for public and private health services and of the supporting clinical costing and modelling methods. They develop competency in the analysis and reporting of hospital and health service utilisation statistics and published health data. Case studies inform student learning of these concepts and their analyses of morbidity, mortality, clinical, productivity and health service data.
