Internal audits for assurance 

Quality risk management is essential in the healthcare sector, where the cost of mistakes can be fatal.

Regular internal audits give stakeholders peace of mind that the organisation’s risks are being effectively managed by:

  • Evaluating processes, policies, and procedures
  • Actively seeking out unidentified risks
  • Assessing the effectiveness of risk controls
  • Identifying improvement opportunities
  • Provide an independent opinion on the financial statements

Pressure test your cybersecurity

Sensitive healthcare data is a prime target for cyber attacks, with the healthcare sector frequently topping the list of notifiable data breaches to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC).

In addition to potential noncompliance, a healthcare organisation which is subjected to an attack may face significant consequences – from reputational damage, disruption to operations/service delivery, and being subjected to external audits, all of which take time and attention away from core service delivery.

Our specialist team can pressure test your security posture, and deliver a comprehensive report, prioritising recommendations for remediation and ongoing improvement. Contact us for:

  • Vulnerability and penetration testing (i.e. Whitehat hackers)
  • Security governance, risk, and controls
  • Social engineering
  • Privacy
  • Data governance reviews




Gain deeper insights with data analytics  

Data analysis is an essential tool for understanding what’s happening within your healthcare organisation, including current trends, pain points, and future needs.

We often find that while organisations operating in the health sector collect a lot of data, they don’t necessarily have the systems in place to analyse it effectively.

You can engage RSM’s data analytics team to harness in-depth data analysis for key insights into expenditure, service delivery, resources, and more. Our goal is to equip you with the knowledge to improve informed decisions making for a better staff and patient experience.

Benchmark compliance

In the highly regulated healthcare sector, it can be very difficult to keep track of all the different compliance requirements that apply to your organisation. But compliance is vital to protecting against potential lawsuits and other penalties.

As specialists in the healthcare sector, our risk advisory division can help you:

  • Understand compliance obligations
  • Benchmark compliance efforts
  • Identify compliance gaps or risks
  • Keep you updated on regulatory changes

This is particularly relevant for aged care providers as they begin to navigate the raft of new compliance requirements under the aged care reforms.
