SERVICES

AHA is a high-performance management consultancy built specifically to help Federal and State Governments achieve their health and human services goals.

Overview of Services

For over 27 years, AHA has undertaken many influential, large-scale evaluation projects for the Australian and state/territory governments, across most aspects of healthcare and social services.

We have extensive experience developing evaluation strategies for complex multi-jurisdictional projects. We adopt innovative approaches to generate high levels of stakeholder engagement, including with people from diverse or under-served populations including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds and people from LGBTI communities.

AHA’s other major workstream is providing program administration services for government.

AHA is currently entrusted with the administration of a range of major long-term government initiatives of national importance. This capability is founded on our extensive investments in systems development, training and state of the art facilities and equipment.

Within AHA, each project is managed by a separate dedicated high-performance team with specific roles and complementary talents and skills. Project examples are provided under two headings:

Evaluation & Advisory  | Program Administration

Aboriginal Health, Aged Care, Blood & Organ Donation, Chronic Illness, Community Care, Diagnostic Services, Disability Services, Education & Childhood Development, Hospitals & Acute Care, Mental Health, Pharmaceuticals, Primary Care, Public & Preventative Health, Rural Health, Social Services.

Evaluation & Advisory

Evaluation & Advisory

AHA is skilled in assessing the appropriateness, effectiveness and efficiency of programs and initiatives; collecting and analysing data to inform decision-making; and providing practical, evidence-based findings and recommendations.

AHA’s Evaluation and Advisory Workstream produces reports that are clear, concise and actionable. We don’t just acquire data, we interpret it. Our work is meticulously researched and our independent status allows us to deliver a rigorous analysis of the evidence and draw robust conclusions.

We apply these skills in projects across settings ranging from small community-based organisations to state-specific initiatives and large national programs.

Many of our evaluations involve sensitive topics and working with potentially vulnerable people. We’re skilled in the use of culturally appropriate approaches and committed to dealing sensitively and ethically with vulnerable individuals.

Our approach is informed by current evaluation theory and best practice, and is designed to suit the requirements of each project. We favour a mixed-methods approach to allow triangulation of information from quantitative and qualitative sources, while seeking to minimise the impost on stakeholders.
