The 2020 Allied Health Improvement Group, in partnership with the Australasian Allied Health Benchmarking Consortium (AAHBC) has been collecting, reporting and comparing Allied Health activity data for over 18 years. 

Your data is used to drive change and innovation in the delivery of patient care across Australia and New Zealand.

In 2019, Health Roundtable benchmarked 5.1 million Allied Hours of service across 900,000 patients looking for service outliers and trying to help identify if more or less is better.

Our exclusive reports focuses on Allied Health hospital activity for Inpatients, Outpatients and ED patients highlighting key insights into your facility including variation and exemplars.

Our unique Workshop creates collaboration and innovation sharing of best practice across Australia and New Zealand members. After our Allied Health Workshop, you will have analysed your data, highlighted an opportunity, leveraged best practice and have an implementation plan ready to present to the workshop the following year.


What do you need to do

  1. Designate a liaison representative as a key contact for this group
  2. Provide detailed activity data from your Allied Health system
  3. Use the Allied Health reports to identify differences in practice and contact other participants to identify innovations
  4. Organise a delegation and attend the annual meeting
  5. Select an improvement project based on the data and share your results with other organisations at the annual meeting

What does The Health Roundtable do?

  1. Collect and process your annual Allied Health data
  2. Merge Allied Health data with inpatient episode data to provide an exclusive suite of comparative reports
  3. Facilitate the annual workshop to identify innovative practices and encourage action
