Why is the Partnership Centre needed?
Worldwide, healthcare systems are being challenged by multiple threats to their capacity to deliver high-quality care. These include ageing populations, increasing rates of chronic and complex diseases, growing cost pressures from new medical technologies and medicines, wasteful spending on low-value care, inefficiencies arising from system fragmentation and limited use of data and evidence to support reform. Our Centre aims to explore these and other challenges to health system sustainability and develop and evaluate a set of practical interventions that are appropriate from clinical, patient, and economic perspectives.
What does the Partnership Centre do?
We are committed to generating and disseminating ideas and evidence to improve the performance of the health system so that it delivers care efficiently and effectively over the long term. Our Centre seeks to maximise health system improvement in the real world by bringing together people who provide, plan, and need healthcare. The outcomes of this work will be practical in nature and relevant to governments at all levels.
