Integrated Systems and Health Administration

Integrated care is the provision of well-connected, effective and efficient care that takes account of and is organised around a person's health and social needs. The benefits of an integrated care system extend to patients, carers, health care providers and the broader health care system. NSW Health is rolling out integrated care strategies and plans to enable a system-wide transformation for the protection and promotion of the public’s health.

If you want to be at the forefront of these strategies, the Integrated Systems and Health Administration major will prepare you for significant changes in health systems and the administration of these changes.

As part of this major you will develop skills across a number of areas including technology, health informatics, communications and data management.
