Enhanced models of care and prevention

Under this research focus area, the Centre for the Business and Economics of Health (CBEH) contributes to the development of evidence-informed models of care that maximise accessibility, sustainability, and equity in health service delivery. We engage with clinicians, health service planners, industry bodies, and consumers to contribute business and economic expertise to the planning, design, implementation, and evaluation of improvements and innovations in healthcare.

Our work includes using economic methods to align population needs to capacities to care and service provision and modelling patient flows through healthcare facilities and systems. We consider opportunities to support better health outcomes that include community-based models and alternative health care settings. We apply our expertise to improve the way health outcomes are achieved in cancer care, oral health, and aged care, among others.
