Health

HCA has developed and implemented numerous evaluation frameworks in the health sector. The HCA team has also been instrumental in developing, reviewing and refining guidelines, standards, policies and procedures for a variety of health sector clients. We also provide training to a variety of health organizations in evaluation capacity building.

HCA is familiar with health profession standards, guidelines and policies. In HCA’s work with the Health Professions Regulatory Advisory Council (HPRAC), Harry developed a framework for evaluating the quality assurance guidelines of all 21 Colleges of Health in Ontario, including the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons, and then implemented the evaluation. HCA have also been contracted by the individual Colleges of Health to review their guidelines.

HCA has worked for a wide variety of health related organizations including ministries of health, colleges of health, national continuing education councils, cancer organizations, hospitals, community health centres, health units, family healthcare teams, clients/patients and other stakeholder groups.
