Our Mission:

The provision of quality, affordable consultancy services to the AHHA membership and more broadly across the health sector.

Who we are:

The AHHA launched JustHealth Consultants as a consultancy service to support Australian healthcare organisations at national, state, regional hospital and community levels across all sectors to meet complex governance and organisational requirements of today’s healthcare system. JHC provides clients with access to a pool of highly experienced and talented individuals, both from the AHHA’s staff and our extensive database of consultants. This group includes those with clinical, managerial, policy and research backgrounds and includes former heads of hospitals and health departments, academic experts and many with extensive international expertise. This range of skills and expertise gives AHHA the flexibility to create extremely targeted teams with specific skills sets as required for each individual client or activity which are capable of delivering the highest quality outcomes in a timely, cost-effective manner.

Through JHC’s connection to the wider AHHA membership and stakeholder base, our consultants are in the unique position to draw upon a considerable portion of the Australian healthcare system for input, consultation and piloting in the development of new policies, programs and projects.

Economic Analysis

With health services under increasing funding pressure, cost-benefit and economic analysis can be key in assessing the viability of services. JHCs team includes health economists who are able to bring together economic models that analyse the impact and outcomes of models of care and modes of funding to create recommendations on a sound base of evidence.

Facilitation

From board meetings, to strategic planning days, workshops and conferences, our skilled facilitators can work with you to build consensus, generate momentum and create engagement. JHC facilitators bring not just facilitation skills but in-depth subject matter knowledge that helps to shed new light on issues and creates productive discussion.

Policy and Program Review

JHC leverages its access to experts and extensive understanding of the Australian health sector to conduct rigorous policy and program reviews. We utilise a systematic approach to policy and program review encompassing thorough consideration of the service context, deep knowledge of the funding environment, understanding drivers and impediments and seeking to provide areas for improvement.

Quality Improvement

Quality improvement projects come in many shapes and sizes, from focus on internal procedures to staff training, external relationships and more. The JHC team works with many of our clients to improve quality through activities such as undertaking Lean Healthcare training, reviewing and optimising processes and building strong team structures.

Review and Evaluation

The health sector is a complex, rapidly changing environment with significant requirements for effective review and evaluation of projects, programs, policies and processes. JHC is able to bring both academic rigour and detailed health sector knowledge to provide insightful, evidence-based reviews or evaluations. Depending on the review or evaluation type, we bring a range of approaches to ensure that any recommendations made are robust, evidence-based and reflect best-practice.

We regularly develop custom surveys, facilitate focus groups and create engagement methodologies that enable our clients to engage with their stakeholders in a meaningful way.
