This subject will develop health analytics skills, enabling students to prepare, analyse, interpret and present clinical and operational data for the purpose of assessing and improving efficiency and quality in the healthcare sector. Understanding, analysing, and interpreting business data, both operational and clinical, has become increasingly important in the healthcare industry, both in terms of delivering effective outcomes and controlling escalating costs. Health analytics encompasses the technologies and skills used to deliver business, clinical, and programmatic insights into the complex interdependencies that drive medical outcomes and costs. Through modelling, optimisation, predictive analytics, and business intelligence, organisations gain insights to strengthen financial performance and improve the way healthcare is delivered for better outcomes across the entire spectrum of health industries, including in the areas of health insurance, healthcare provision and public health. This subject will provide students with the detailed knowledge to understand as well as conceive and conduct data-based analytics which will allow the measurement and potential improvement of the full gamut of health industry activities.
