This Week's Highlight - Opportunities in Health Services

This week sees the release of several new panel opportunities, two of which are in the health services sector. As noted previously, panels are an opportuntity for governments to establish a ‘one stop shop’ for a particular range of goods or services at an agreed cost under an agreed set of terms and conditions via a Deed of Standing Offer. The two health services panel opportunties are with the Department of Health and Comcare.

The Australian Aged Care Quality Agency (under the Department of Health) is seeking to establish a panel of suppliers to assess the performance of residential aged care in Australia against the Accreditation Standards. This panel will seek to improve existing adhoc service contracts and allow the agency to meet the new aged care quality standards that will be legislated from July 2019. Tenderers must be registered Aged Care quality assessors and be prepared to commit to completing a minimum of 6 assignments per year per nominated assessor. It is anticipated the Deed will be signed April 2018, and have a term of three years. Tenders close on the 21 March 18. (link to RFT)

In a similar contractual arrangement, Comcare is seeking to establish a panel of medical and allied health professionals to assist in claims management. This service is aimed at providing clinically justified treatment and evidence based practices to improve health and return to work outcomes for employees. The health professionals being sought are Psychiatrists, Medical Practitioners, Psychologists, Physiotherapists and Pharmacists all requiring a minimum of eight years professional experience (four years for pharmacists) with some experience in a workers compensation environment being seen as highly desirable. This panel is anticipated to commence 1 July 18 and will run for three years with options to extend up to 6 years. Tenders close 3 April 18. (link to RFT)
