Australia’s healthcare is at a tipping point and in the wake of digitalisation, shifting demographics and disruptive technologies, the face of healthcare is changing.  Innovation and technology present new unchartered territory for an outdated healthcare ecosystem.  Aged care, outpatient management, chronic conditions, increased utilisation of services and growing consumer demand have placed additional strain on existing systems.   
The 5th annual Healthcare Innovation conference provides revolutionary approaches on how to invest in policy and reform today to ensure future delivery of the right patient care delivered in the right time frame.  Co-located with the Health Sector Workforce Summit, the event will uncover how consumer expectations, digitalisation and shifting patient demographics are redefining the equation for universal access to healthcare and how policy, reform, funding and transformation are closing the gap to ensure reliable and sustainable systems, infrastructure and primary healthcare delivery for the future of Australia’s patient profiles and demand.
Don’t miss the International Sustainable Innovation Pre-Conference Workshop with NHS England’s Academic Health Science Network.

Why Sponsor Healthcare Innovation

Raise your profile at the 5th Annual Healthcare Innovation conference
The 5th Annual Healthcare Innovation conference brings together healthcare leaders from Government, public and private healthcare providers and Not-for-Profits to discuss best practices in planning, funding and digital delivery of healthcare services to develop a more affordable and sustainable health system.  
Extensive research with public and private healthcare providers tells us that this discussion is relevant now because: 
  1. Australia's ageing population, utilisation and growing consumer demand is putting more stress on an already struggling healthcare system 
  2. Funding is a major challenge and organisations are under pressure to deliver better services 
As a result, Government and healthcare providers are faced with the challenge of adapting to evolving patient needs and delivering quality care that meets the expectations of Australia’s population. 
Co-located with the Health Sector Workforce conference:
When it comes to workforce planning and capability development, the healthcare industry has its own unique set of challenges. Being a highly customer-facing sector, workforce strategy is key and the need for capable staff and skilled specialists, paramount. But what does good look like? What are other health organisations doing in this space? More importantly, what are they doing differently? Be sure to attend the Health Sector Workforce conference to find out.
