IMPACT - Project 4 - Trialling evidence based access innovations
A mixed-method evaluation of the impact of organisational innovations to improve access for vulnerable populations
Project Leads: Mark Harris, Grant Russell, Simone Dahrouge, Jeannie Haggerty
Purpose: This project aims to: 1) pilot an intervention model in the LIPs; 2) evaluate the intervention model developed in with our partners. This project will involve both quantitative and qualitative methods to address these specific research questions.
- How effective and efficient are locally adapted system level innovations in CBPHC in:
- improving vulnerable populations perceived accessibility to CBPHC services;
- reducing avoidable use of hospital Emergency Departments and hospitalisation by vulnerable populations?
- What are the costs in implementing this model, where do these occur and how does this compare with the potential savings in terms of reduced demand on hospitals?
Project 4 will provide a comprehensive qualitative and quantitative evaluation of the feasibility of the implementation of intervention model in a range of local areas, its impact on quality of care and hospital use and economic evaluation of the costs and benefits.
