Tactical Medical Degrees
As instances of mass casualty attacks increase, first responders need to be ready to manage and react to emergencies in high-risk situations where their personal safety may be compromised. Learn to deal with acute trauma situations and be uniquely qualified to respond in resource limited, dynamic and high threat environments with a qualification in Tactical Medicine from CQUniversity. Available entirely online, these highly flexible courses are ideal for paramedics and first-responders alike to gain the critical skills needed to assess, plan, prepare and implement strategies for successful operations and patient management within a tactical environment.

ORH has supported ambulance services in Australasia for over 20 years. We have helped solve station location problems, quantify demand and capacity challenges, and set efficiency targets through our consultancy-based approach.
Our industry-leading simulation and optimisation models allow us to quickly evaluate different options for change while providing powerful evidence to support key decisions. Our models are tailored to each client based on analysis of operational data and have been used to:
- Design hub-and-spoke systems and optimise estate strategies
- Assess the impacts of changes to on-duty/on-call working
- Quantify staff and vehicle requirements to meet response standards
- Model changes to hospital configurations
- Test changes to job cycle components
- Identify the impact of increasing demand
Our independent, global experience and specialist knowledge of the ambulance sector uniquely enable us to provide useful insight and feasible recommendations, and explain these clearly to external stakeholders.
Non-Emergency Patient Transport Planning
You may be familiar with ORH’s work for EMS providers, but did you know that we also support non-emergency patient transport (NEPT) providers?
While there are clear parallels with EMS service planning, NEPT providers face their own unique challenges and opportunities for improved efficiency. Our clients often struggle to:
- Find the correct balance of vehicles for different patient mobilities
- Justify the staff skill mix on their vehicles to meet patient needs
- Align rosters against irregular levels of transports across the day
- Understand the impact of changing the number of same day bookings
- Develop a quantified operational improvement plan
- Quantify the impact that any of these changes may have on patient experience, service efficiency and timeliness
Through a data-led consultancy and modelling approach ORH has helped NEPT providers in Australia and the UK tackle these issues. If any of these issues sound familiar to you, please get in touch.
