Improving health outcome measurement through innovation and engagement
When implementing health programs, there has been a shift in focus from measuring the output to measuring the outcomes. This presents a particularly complicated challenge for program providers who must identify and measure outcomes across a variety of programs. To make this process as effective as possible we need to ensure that we can develop measurement systems that are efficient and uncomplicated so that programs can be managed sustainably.

The Measuring Health Outcomes conference will examine strategies to develop a system for measuring health outcomes from end to end, including what to measure, how to measure, how to analyse and how to use data collected to inform and advance policy and funding.

What will you take away?
  • An understanding of how to develop and evaluate health outcomes
  • How to implement an evaluation system for different programs
  • Strategies to measure the impact of your services on diverse and marginalised groups
  • Approaches to building partnerships with other organisations to collect and share data
