Clinton Griffiths

Nurse Unit Manager Paediatrics, Ballarat Health Services, VIC

Our health service is working with CHA  to develop a benchmarking process to help us to study and improve the quality of care we provide. It is such a pleasure to work with the enthusiastic, helpful, and knowledgeable CHA team. They bring a collaborative, ‘can-do’ attitude to our meetings that helps us to break complex problems into manageable steps and work towards a shared goal.

Gehan Roberts

Paediatrician/Associate Director, CCCH, the Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne

We are developing something from scratch for which there is no template or logical precursor. Busy clinicians often have ideas of what could be in the data space but seldom the skills or abilities to turn this into reality. CHA is the bridge between concept and reality.
