Manager, System Design

The Manager System Design oversees the establishment of frameworks to guide the safety and quality of clinical care in Victoria's public health system.  Representing a key priority of the Department of Health, the Clinical Capability Frameworks define the standards for support services, staffing, and infrastructure to enable safe and appropriately supported clinical services.  Capability Frameworks are an important component of a robust health care system and will form part of a role delineation framework that sets out the minimum requirements for providing particular kinds of care across Victoria. 

The Manager System Design will oversee a team responsible for the progressive development and monitoring of these frameworks through leading consultation and negotiation across the Department of Health, Safer Care Victoria, the Victorian Health Building Authority and the broader acute hospital sector.  The role will provide leadership and expert advice in scoping, developing and implementing health policy reform and will leverage innovation in technology and processes to sustainably systematise its implementation.

Working closely with the broader System Planning teams, the position also provides strategic advice and guidance on analyses and projects that inform and support Victoria's evolving system design directions, and the impact of these directions on services and service models across the sector.
