Biography

Jane Banaszak-Holl is a health services researcher and gerontologist trained in the sociology of health and medicine.  She is Professor in the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine and Post Graduate Course Coordinator in the School as well as Co-Course Coordinator for the Master of Health Administration and Master of Health Management programs.  She received a BA with honours from the University of Chicago and an MA and PhD from Cornell University. 

She has previously held post-doctoral positions at Columbia University and Brown University, and faculty positions at the University of Greenwich and for the longest time in the School of Public Health at the University of Michigan, where she also served as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs (with joint appointments in the Schools of Medicine and Arts and Sciences).  She currently serves as Associate Editor for Quality Management in Health Care, a journal founded at the Institute of Healthcare Improvement as an outlet for quality and safety research.  She has been visiting faculty at the University of Manchester Business School and the University of Aberdeen.  She also served over 10 years on the Board of Directors for the United Methodist Retirement Community (UMRC) of Michigan, a senior residential services organization that grew during that period from $40 million to over 60 million USD in annual expenditures.

For her research on healthcare delivery, she received research funding from the National Institutes of Health, the Agency for Health Care Research, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Foundation, and the US Veterans Administration. She holds the honorary title of Fellow in the Gerontological Society of America.  She has received the Fottler Exceptional Service Award from the Academy of Management’s Health Care ManagementDivision (with over 1,000 members across the world). 

Her research focuses on how the structure and changes in the delivery system impact health outcomes, particularly for long-term and residential care services, and with attention to implementation issues that arise with complex changes in health services.  Since coming to Monash, she is a member of the Registry Science and Research Program and is working with ASPREE data to evaluate clinical quality outcomes and to help develop potential indicators for the dementia pilot registry.   She is developing further research on quality improvement processes, in the co-design of palliative care and transitional care, and in developing the leadership competencies of post-graduate health management and public health leaders.
