Overview

The healthcare revolution is gaining momentum.

The challenges the sector is facing is at a tipping point; from the Royal Commission into Aged Care, to a growing population placing more strain on services, to the ongoing privacy debate.

At the same time, a data-driven transformation is empowering patients to take control of their own health, rapidly increasing efficiency.

Developments in artificial intelligence, robotics, precision medicine, wearables, and virtual care delivery are reshaping provider-patient relationships. More contemporary models of care are required to be implemented at scale, now.

The Summit will explore how the sector can come together to usher in a new era in healthcare, one that places the patient at the centre.

The Summit focuses on four key themes:

1. Driving digital change;
2. Technology and the art of the possible;
3. Unlocking the potential of the healthcare sector; and
4. Enabling transformation

Topics covered include aged care, the future of primary care delivery, professional conduct, integrating technologies, precinct models of excellence, and strategies to facilitate change.

An influential line-up of healthcare decision makers and disruptors will delve into how the convergence of technological capability and systemic readiness to catalyse change can meet the challenges that lie ahead.

We welcome you to join this crucial conversation.

This session concludes the day’s proceedings by outlining the key barriers to change, and, importantly, zeroing in on the steps that government, care providers, clinicians, insurers and the patients themselves can take, to achieve better patient outcomes in a reimagined healthcare ecosystem, sooner.
