Identifying Health Service Priorities: Developing and Applying a Tool for Navigating the Evidence

HealthPrior Tool Development

Project Summary 

Significant investments in health systems data collection and synthesis are maturing.  We now have more information than ever before about current and future trends in burden of disease, health service costs and the expected impact of service provision. Decision makers thus have an unprecedented body of evidence to inform their selection of high priority health services but navigating such complex evidence can prove challenging.

Through this project, we will develop and apply the Health Services Prioritisation Tool (HealthPrior) to assist decision makers in selecting, synthesising and generating evidence to aid policy discussions around health service prioritisation.
