The Australian Healthcare Index provides a pulse check on healthcare in Australia based on people’s perspectives and experiences. Produced by Healthengine and the Australian Patients Association, this is the third report. Adults across the country provided personal points of view and experience across the public and private healthcare ecosystem with primary care, private health insurance (PHI), emergency departments, elective surgery, prescription medicine and timely mental health and COVID-related insights.

During late April, we surveyed adults in Australia through an Alchemer online survey. Painted Dog Research was commissioned to analyse and process data collected by Healthengine. The final sample was 11,652 which was weighted to be nationally representative. The survey was promoted by Healthengine and the Australian Patients Association through emails, newsletters and social media. The report is now available for download.
