People are at the centre of everything that we do. Together we can empower people and build capacity so we are the global leader in healthcare innovation.
Consumer and Clinical Partnerships
Collaboration is the key to innovation. Excellent healthcare doesn’t just happen by chance, it’s designed and continues to be designed as we manage the constant transformation of the health system.Everything we do involves partnering and collaboration for a better health system.
Our Consumer and Clinical Partnerships directorate is focused on developing systems to build and nurture the relationships between clinicians, communities, consumers and carers and others who work in the health system. These partnerships help improve experiences, foster innovation and ultimately lead to better health outcomes.
Clinical Improvement and Innovation
New thinking unlocks new opportunities. We bring improvement and innovation together with horizon scanning, research, knowledge, emerging technologies and people to think differently about how healthcare is delivered.
Our Clinical Improvement and Innovation directorate is responsible for creating an environment that supports all stages of innovation — ideation, execution and adoption – ranging from continuous improvement to the big new ideas. By combining creative thinking with emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics and virtual and augmented reality, we can become global leaders in health innovation.
Data makes the possibilities endless. More than just numbers and identifying patterns, Clinical Informatics can dramatically improve how we deliver healthcare.
We can enable innovation and technology to aid how we make clinical decisions, develop policies, plan services, improve and evaluate what we do. We can upscale our ideas and programs, or downsize them, using data. We can even map out if they will be sustainable.
The Clinical Informatics Directorate is about improving how data and analytics are used to improve healthcare, building capability in clinical informatics, enhancing the data assets and providing better access to data across the health system to inform the creation of better healthcare.
Human Centred Design
Human centred design is about putting people at the centre of everything we do. It brings clinicians together with consumers, their families and carers, and the wider community through every step of our design processes.
Human centred design starts by understanding people’s experience and what matters to them, it then creates connections so they can test ideas together with healthcare providers and provide better healthcare experiences and outcomes for everyone — consumers, carers and their families, as well as healthcare providers.
People are at the centre of everything we do.
The Human Centred Design Directorate provides knowledge and advice to build capacity, understanding, skills and thinking for a more compassionate health system where all involved respect, value and actively seek out each others’ opinions. The Human Centred Design Directorate is also helping build resilience and wellbeing among clinical staff so that they can better manage their stress, be healthier and deliver better healthcare for all South Australians.
