Karol Consulting d.o.o. is a Croatian based health consultancy company. The firm has Australian roots and was borne out of the consulting activities of Medicare Australia which, when involved in international consulting work between 1995 and 2006, had implemented significant health reform projects for many international clients. The directors of Karol Consulting are Karl Karol, who was the head of consulting services for Medicare Australia and Dr Karolina Kalanj who managed Medicare Australia activities in the region.

The firm’s main focus is to assist clients develop methods and systems through which they can obtain the best health outcomes from the resources that are invested in the health system. The main strategies that we use to achieve these objectives are: undertaking strategic evaluations of systems or issues, targeting health system incentives; organizing access to appropriate data for health system decision making; and institutional reform and capacity building.

Our approach is to work closely with clients in order to implement meaningful and sustainable solutions, and it is our aim to provide practical advice that is appropriate and implementable in the particular environment in which the project is located.
