Health Administration - Draft 2

Project Summary

SkillsIQ, under the direction of the Technicians Support Services Industry Reference Committee (IRC), has undertaken a project to update the existing Certificate IV in Health Administration Qualification and four existing Health Administration Units of Competency to ensure that individuals who work in senior operational or team-leading roles in the health industry have access to the appropriate skills and knowledge to meet the current and future needs of the Australian health care system, especially in regional and remote areas where there is limited access to doctors or nurses.

The 2018 Technicians Support Services Industry Skills Forecast (ISF) identified that the HLT47315 Certificate IV in Health Administration Qualification and four associated Units of Competency needed to be updated due to the changing requirements of administrative job roles in the health sector.

The updated Qualification will ensure that individuals who work in senior operational or team-leading roles in the health industry have access to the appropriate skills and knowledge to meet the current and future needs of the Australian health care system, especially in regional and remote areas where there is limited access to doctors or nurses, and will help to enable industry needs to be met in terms of rural, remote and cross-disciplinary roles.

The Technicians Support Services IRC, made up of stakeholders and subject matter experts from across Australia, has informed the identification and validation of the exact nature of the skills needs and knowledge requirements in the industry and the respective Training Package Product update requirements.

To take Training Package Product update work forward, members of the Technicians Support Services IRC have subsequently reviewed and confirmed the changes required for the development of Draft 2, based on feedback received during the first round of consultation.

The Draft 2 consultation period will seek feedback on one existing Qualification and four existing Units of Competency, as follows:

  • HLT47321 Certificate IV in Health Administration
  • HLTADM008 Administer and coordinate Telehealth services
  • HLTADM009 Manage Telehealth technology
  • HLTADM010 Facilitate a coordinated approach to client care
  • HLTADM011 Manage health billing and accounting system.
  • Consultation Activities and Timelines

    National validation of Draft 2 will be open from Wednesday, 07 July 2021 and close at 5.00pm on Wednesday, 21 July 2021.

    During this time SkillsIQ will be liaising with industry stakeholders, employers and subject matter experts.

"(1) Ensure that the provision of educational material covered by dot point 2 is inclusive of information about advance care planning, including the required forms for documenting preferences and care in an advance care directive and appointing a substitute decision-maker. (2) Health Administration staff should be able to provide consumers, carers, families, and substitute decision-makers basic information about advance care planning. (3) Health administration staff should be able to identify whether a consumer has an advance care planning document in the admission process (if relevant) and enact any storage protocols to ensure advance care planning documents are stored appropriately at the health service.

"There are a large number of core units in this qualification. Some of these units limit the potential candidate pool for the qualification. Units such as HLTADM010 Facilitate a co-ordinated approach to client care, HLTAM011 Manage health billing and accounting system are not relevant to those in the public health system who would otherwise benefit from this qualification. I am not questioning the appropriateness of these units, however I think they should be electives so that the qualification is able to reach a greater proportion of the health administration supervisory workforce."

"When the Cert III Health Administration and Diploma of Practice Management are reviewed, will the Medical Terminology unit change to be consistent with the Certificate IV Health Administration? If this unit is kept as a core. BSBMED301 is the favourite unit of our Health Administration students. It is also used as a credit transfer into many other areas of health if the student continues into other areas with their health studies. "
