On 14th and 15th November, Synergia is at booth 14 of the National Primary Healthcare Conference 2013 hosted by the Australian Medicare Local Alliance. The conference is being held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, Broadbeach Australia.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
We are proud to host students from the University of Auckland's School of Population Health as part of the Bachelor of Health Science Community Internship. This is the first time we have partnered with the university in this way, and builds on a range of existing collaborations between the two organisations.
These internships provide third-year students with an opportunity to learn and gain experience from a local health organisation. Two interns, Devika Kumar and Arslan Ahmed, are working with Sarah Appleton-Dyer and David Todd on a Australian-based project with the New South Wales Mental Health Commission. This will contribute to our work in supporting the Commission to develop a ten-year mental health strategy. Synergia will be using our Beyond Brainstorming process to engage with up to 500 stakeholders on their perspectives to inform the mental health strategy. Our interns will support the Synergia team to conduct the thematic analysis of the Beyond Brainstorming data.
Synergia's Adrian Field is acting as an Academic Supervisor to two more interns, Samantha Leonard and Marvin Youhana. Sam and Marvin are working with Arthritis New Zealand on a survey of people who have taken part in their group clinic services.
Synergia welcomes all the interns to the team and are looking forward to working with them.
Synergia is currently involved in the challenging task of quantifying the impact of Whanau Ora (whole of family) service innovations in Rotorua. The work looks at the immediate impact of Whanau Ora plans and support and identifies the longer term outcome for Whanau and impact on costs and benefits across health, welfare, education, employment and justice.
We are working with a Medicare Local to develop technology that integrates, analyses and visualises multiple data flows to lift capacity in analysis, achieve automated reporting and attractively present local service performance information to clinicians.
