The Victorian Healthcare Association engaged HMA to develop a:

‘… high-quality home care package environmental scan document that aims to increase the understanding of the changing market in which hospitals and registered community health services deliver HCP[s].’

To deliver the environmental scan, HMA considered relevant policy documentation, reviews of the aged sector, aged care reforms, existing HCP provider and consumer resources, financial insights into the HCP market and the relevance of the market to public providers.

The method HMA applied to deliver the environmental scan and case studies consisted of the following four stages, together with the milestones associated with each stage.

  • Stage 1: Initial scoping and planning
    • Milestone: submission of proposed project plan and scope
  • Stage 2: Research, consultations and case study development

  • Stage 3: Information consolidation
    • Milestone: draft document submission
  • Stage 4: Finalisation

The project commenced in March 2019 and was completed in June 2019.
