Health

The cost of health care is rising significantly along with the pressure to manage it. There is also mounting pressure to meet the growing needs and expectations of the community. Synergies assist clients, both public and private, regulated and unregulated, overcome the unique challenges they face to deliver affordable health care. Strategic investment and R&D advice, reviews of public policy, comparison of service delivery models, cost-benefit analysis, and market modelling are a few of the services we provide to our health sector clients. Please see below for examples of our work for the AEIOU, CSL, and Queensland Alliance for Mental Health.
