A new, lucrative line of surveillance consultants is opening up in Australia.
The term “healthcare surveillance” is a commonly used term to describe people who perform surveillance work on hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, doctors’ offices and other public health facilities, which are also known as public health systems.
The concept of “health care surveillance” dates back to the 1980s, when the term “inspection” was used to describe the work done by health professionals to detect and remove pathogens.
“There are actually several distinct aspects of health care surveillance,” says Dr. Sarah Hutton, director of the University of New South Wales’ Centre for Surveillance and Epidemiology.
“One is the monitoring of a patient, and then also a team of health workers that are working on the patient.
That’s the second aspect, the monitoring and identifying of any possible risks or threats to the health of the patient or to the community.
Then there’s the actual treatment and monitoring, including the diagnosis and treatment.”
What makes a healthcare surveillance specialist is the ability to monitor a large population in real time, and the ability and willingness to work with doctors, nurses and other health professionals, who will help to identify any potential issues that may be coming from a patient or the community, Dr. Hutton says.
The work done on a healthcare system is called “health service surveillance.”
The concept has been around for years, but it hasn’t taken off until recently.
That is because there’s not enough funding available to monitor all of Australia’s healthcare systems.
“When you talk about the number of people who need to be monitored in order to have an accurate picture of what is going on in a particular community, then that’s not a lot of money,” Dr. Mark MacGregor, a clinical professor of health and public health at the University’s College of Medicine, says.
“So when we say there are a few thousand people in Australia who are looking at a health system, that’s probably not enough to meet the needs of all of them.”

“If you’re a healthcare consultant, you’re essentially going to work for the Australian Health Service, or the Australian Public Health Service,” Dr MacGregore says.
You can find a list of available vacancies on the AHS website.
Health systems have to pay a “security consultant” to monitor their systems, and they must be certified to work at the level required by the AHP.
If you don’t meet the requirements, the AHR can impose restrictions on you.
“You need to have a minimum of five years’ experience of healthcare surveillance,” Dr Hutton explains.
“You have to be certified, you have to have some sort of monitoring skills.
And the last thing you want to do is be a consultant.”
A healthcare security analyst is someone who does surveillance work, or who works on healthcare systems, but does not have a direct connection to the system or a direct line of communication with the healthcare system.
They are often referred to as a “health surveillance consultant” because they have direct knowledge of the healthcare systems and can assist in their monitoring.
“The most common reason that a healthcare practitioner gets contracted is for surveillance work,” Dr James Smith, a professor of healthcare management at the Sydney University of Technology, says, adding that the AHT has to be prepared to cover the costs of a healthcare consultancy’s salary.
“They have to get the contract and pay the health consultant, so that’s the most common issue,” he says.
Dr Hutton is working with a healthcare IT consultant, who is working for the ACHC.
She is also working with an AHP security consultant who is doing work for an employer.
Dr MacGregory is working on behalf of a pharmaceutical company.
He is also in contact with the AHCS.
He has not received a contract, and he has been contacted by other healthcare security consultants in Australia, who are seeking a similar position.
“It’s a very competitive market,” he tells ABC News.
“The industry is incredibly fragmented, with a lot going on.
It’s really hard to predict what the market is going to look like.
It might be a bit more fragmented in the next few years.”
Dr Macgregory says that there are opportunities in the healthcare security industry for people who don’t have a relationship with the hospital or health system.
“Somebody can come in and do a little surveillance for a while and then get out of the system and become a consultant,” he explains.
But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t challenges in the industry, including:Being paid for work that is unrelated to your roleAs a healthcare services consultant, your work will include surveillance work in hospitals, nursing facilities, clinics and other places that have health departments, such as primary care, and that are covered by Medicare.
