Marumali is an innovative service delivery model aiming at improving the accessibility of mainstream health care services by the Australian Indigenous community. An evaluation is essential to examine the effectiveness of the model in achieving the desired outcomes. The findings of the evaluation will provide guidance for future policy directions in relation to health care for the Australian Indigenous population.
The evaluation is an action research model and assessing the Service in terms of accessibility, equity, effectiveness, appropriateness, efficiency, capacity, support and participation of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) community and cultural security.
The evaluation is using a mixed method approach. The data elements include de-identified patient demographic and service utilization data from Marumali and Medicare claim data. Semi-structured interviews will be conducted with all the parties involved with the Service.
