Overview

The healthcare revolution is gaining momentum.

The challenges the sector is facing is at a tipping point; from the inquiry 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 relationship. 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 economic 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.

ENABLING TRANSFORMATION

15:40

Quality and Conduct

With the Royal Commission, the spotlight has never been greater on Aged Care in Australia. This session will explore the quality and conduct conversation and, critically, the experiences of older Australians receiving care. How do we shape the future of Aged Care to enable better outcomes for its recipients?

16:00

Mental health and wellness

E-mental health services and telehealth services are emerging as effective treatments to improve mental health. Moreover, increasing volume, reach and affordability means more people than ever before can access e-mental health services, and this is fundamentally changing the accessibility of e-mental health services, and is contributing to the progress on the national conversation on mental health.

16:20

PANEL | All systems go
With introduction by Michael Walsh, Director General, Queensland Health.

The structure of the healthcare ecosystem has changed. Technology and personalization are driving this ongoing transformation: patients are in control more than ever, and rightly so. Whilst there remain barriers, the momentum for change continues to grow.

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.

Dr Tony Bartone, President, AMA
