20200417_RMP_Logo-FINALCall for EOI - Consultant Health Economist 

The Australian College of Perioperative Nurses (ACORN) is a registered Australian charity. ACORN is Australia’s peak body of perioperative nursing, the only perioperative nursing content provider and one of Australia's largest specialty nursing colleges.

ACORN requires the advice of and assistance from a health economist to complete a consultancy to establish the best approach to determining and demonstrating the value to a health service organisation of applying ACORN's Standards for Perioperative Nursing in Australia (the ACORN Standards). The consultant health economist will be expected to work with ACORN staff, and external stakeholders nominated by ACORN, to gather, analyse and report information and make a series of recommendations to ACORN regarding how to drive uptake and retention of the ACORN Standards by hospitals/groups, based on a value pricing model that appeals to procurement, perioperative staff and health service organisation management. 

It is likely that the health economist will be required to show how the ACORN Standards reduce risks and what the potential savings are to a range of health service organisations (day-only procedure, public sector, private sector, regional/metropolitan). This would include advice about how to reference the incidence of risks and cost of those risks. ACORN is willing to be advised on these issues as part of the submissions process and negotiations with successful applicants.

This expression of interest (EOI) process may be the first stage of a multi-stage procurement process.
