Enhancing lives through healthcare education

In February 2012, the Institute of Health & Management (IHM) was established. Since then, IHM has been recognised as a higher education institution. The Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency of the Australian Government grants this status.

The Institute of Health & Management (IHM) was formed in 2015 and focuses on the development and delivery of health-related higher education courses. Experienced nurses, professors, and clinicians contribute to these postgraduate courses. In 2021, IHM will become the first private higher education school in Australia to offer a Master of Nursing programme!

IHM's aim is to become an Australian University College by 2030, and in order to achieve this, we are continuously working to incorporate the finest technology-based resources into our curriculum in order to provide our students with an unrivalled training experience. IHM places a strong emphasis on innovative and technological breakthroughs in learning and teaching. The rising use of new technologies like as virtual reality simulations, online platforms, and applications enhances classroom-based learning on campus and allows for the delivery of online courses of study to fulfil the demands of working nurses.

HCI Education Hub
Enhancing lives through borderless education

The HCI Learning Hub is an online learning platform for healthcare students and professionals from all around the world. They may work together online, network with peers and educators, and use a plethora of online resources to improve their knowledge and abilities and bring them up to date with global best practises and curriculum.

HCI Education Hubs Pty Ltd is a subsidiary of Health Careers International, a Melbourne-based healthcare education company (HCI). Education Hubs enable students and businesses open doors to a new world of exciting new courses and career possibilities, all offered at times that are convenient for the student - their work and other obligations.

Learning, Work, and Life, we believe, should all coexist. We also recognise that the majority of students work and study, thus tutorials for students in the midst of a shift or late at night are of limited value.

Within this initiative, a central function of an Education Hub is to connect labour market supply with demand for qualified individuals by assessing and analysing labour market possibilities in partner and possible host nations.

Enhancing lives through education technology

HCI Australia's technology branch is Edusystems. It creates cutting-edge online applications and enterprise systems to help clients better manage their compliance, quality processes, and communication with internal and external stakeholders.

We identified a challenge after 5 years of managing an Australia Registered Training Organisation (RTO). The existing Student Management Systems (SMS) on the market were unable to give us with the data we wanted in a timely and cost-effective manner in order to fulfil the auditing body's compliance criteria. As a result, we found ourselves surrounded by heaps of paperwork, combing through each one manually to get the information we needed. We realised we weren't alone at that point! Edusystems was founded in 2012 as a result of this finding, and by the following year, we had built our own fully customised SMS platform, Knowledge Hub, from the scratch.

Since then, Knowledge Hub has effectively assisted IHNA and IHM in meeting all regulatory organisations' compliance requirements, including ASQA, TEQSA, ANMAC, CRICOS, ESOS, and many more... Knowledge Hub has developed into two versions, KHLite and KH Enterprise, and currently serves numerous educational establishments throughout Southeast Asia, much as it did for HCI Australia enterprises in the beginning.

EduSystems has expanded to a staff of over 60 experts that provide educational establishments across the world with bespoke software development, technical solutions consulting, and multimedia content production.
