The Australasian Allied Health Benchmarking Consortium (AAHBC) is a network of Allied Health representatives from tertiary, teaching hospitals across Australia and New Zealand. The main purpose of AAHBC is to develop and maintain a standardised approach to benchmarking of allied health activity as well as evaluating processes and outcomes.
The group was established in 1997 to ensure consistency of allied health data collection for benchmarking across a network of collaborative teaching hospitals in Australia. Originally named NAHBC (National Allied Health Benchmarking Consortium), the group has now expanded to include tertiary hospitals from New Zealand.
AAHBC is involved in project work that enhances and validates benchmarking processes. Membership also provides input into health related issues of broad, national significance as appropriate. AAHBC utilises Health Round Table data collection and reporting to assist the development of relevant benchmarking projects and subsequent action plans.
