Current Size: 136%


AMHOCN was established by the Australian Government to work collaboratively with the States and Territories and others in the mental health sector to implement routine outcome measurement in public mental health services. AMHOCN consists of three components: a data bureau responsible for receiving and processing information; an analysis and reporting component providing analysis and reports of submitted data; and a training and service development component supporting training in the measures and their use for clinical practice, service management and development purposes.

Currently, the Australian Government has contracted, through the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW), the following organisations to undertake these roles: Logicly (formerly Strategic Data) – Data Bureau; The University of Queensland – Analysis & Reporting; and the Health Education and Training Institute – Training & Service Development.
