Partnership Approach and Tools

Now, more than ever, we need strate­gies to strength­en our health­care sys­tem, inno­vate and solve wicked prob­lems”. Col­lab­o­ra­tive part­ner­ships can deliv­er excep­tion­al out­comes when planned and man­aged well.

Part­ner­ships are inte­gral to the CEIH’s work, bring­ing togeth­er dif­fer­ent organ­i­sa­tions and stake­hold­ers with a shared goal.

To sup­port the South Aus­tralian health­care sec­tor broad­ly, we are now shar­ing our Part­ner­ship Approach and a suite of sup­port­ing tools for oth­er organ­i­sa­tions to use.

Build­ing qual­i­ty part­ner­ships in the health­care sec­tor describes the CEIH’s approach to part­ner­ships, includ­ing the part­ner­ship process in detail.

Why partner?

Work­ing col­lab­o­ra­tive­ly with diverse part­ners allows for the shar­ing of knowl­edge, skills, influ­ence and resources to inno­vate and achieve out­comes beyond what an organ­i­sa­tion could achieve on its own. Impor­tant­ly, work­ing in part­ner­ship can increase the reach, impact and sus­tain­abil­i­ty of health outcomes.

Break­ing down tra­di­tion­al silos’ and suc­cess­ful­ly join­ing up activ­i­ties takes focus and effort but is becom­ing increas­ing­ly foun­da­tion­al in lead­ing health­care organ­i­sa­tions around the world.
