86 health service organisations across Australia and New Zealand are currently members of The Health Roundtable. Many health service members have multiple facilities. A total of 148 facilities currently provide data for comparative analysis.

Membership of The Health Roundtable is open to health services across Australia and New Zealand, subject to approval by the Board of Directors. Each member organisation nominates its most senior operational executive to serve as a Personal Member of the Roundtable.

Personal Members elect a Board of Directors to provide administrative governance. They meet twice yearly to shape the agenda and review progress.

  Free up more time for treating patients and improve the accuracy of your professional time reporting by using the Activity BarCoding (ABC) System.

The ABC System replaces paper diaries and data entry typing tasks with a portable barcode reader that instantly records the barcode label of the patient you are seeing plus codes for your key activities with the patient, as you deliver your service.  It then takes just a couple of minutes to upload and review all your activity for the day.  The system was designed from the ground up for busy health care professionals, with extensive management reports for you, your patients and referring departments. 

For more information, please check the Activity BarCoding website or call David Dean at (02) 4385-5894.

Structure

The Health Roundtable is governed by its Board of Directors who are elected by the membership at the Annual General Meeting, or appointed by other Board members to fill casual vacancies until the next Annual General Meeting.  Board members must be Personal Members of The Health Roundtable, which means that they are the nominated representative within their health services.

The management and service provision of the organisation is outsourced to Chappell Dean Pty Limited, a health consultancy organisation.  The outsourcing contract is based on a per-member-per-service pricing model which is negotiated 18 months in advance.  Dr David Dean is seconded by Chappell Dean to serve as General Manager of The Health Roundtable.

Contract performance is assessed at each meeting and on an annual basis to identify issues and corrective actions required.

A history of the development of The Health Roundtable (as of March 2008) can be found here.

The Health Roundtable operates under a Constitution approved in 2006 which is available here.
