The Australian Healthcare Transformation Summit is co-located with the Health Infrastructure Summit will take place in Melbourne from 20-22 November. The event brings together health professionals to discuss best practice strategies and solutions to develop a more affordable and sustainable health system and explore major infrastructure projects across the nation. 

 
Australia's ageing population, utilisation and growing consumer demand is putting more stress on an already struggling healthcare system - as record spending tries to keep pace with the demand for high quality and affordable healthcare services. 
 
With the Government pledging to spend over $130 billion over the next 5 years to deliver a sustainable healthcare system, how can organisations incorporate funding arrangements in an impactful way and deliver better health outcomes?  
  • Examine recent heath care reforms and the impact it will have on both the Australian population and your organisation 
  • Discover the latest digital transformation processes being implemented – what is being implemented, who is doing it, and how to achieve success 
  • Find out how government, healthcare providers and not-for-profits can collaborate to achieve a more affordable and valuable health care system 
 
With record investments by Government in health capital works and infrastructure development, there is a need to harness best practices in design, build and project management to ensure these large-scale and complex projects are successfully delivered on-time, and within budget.

Who Should Sponsor

Raise your profile at the 4th Annual Healthcare Reform, Funding and Innovation Summit. 
 
The 4th Annual Healthcare Reform, Funding and Innovation Summit 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 challenges and delivering quality care which meets the needs of Australia’s population.  
CO-LOCATED WITH Improving Patient Experience Summit
The Improving Patient Experience Summit will bring together stakeholders from Australia’s healthcare system to share insights, strategies and best practices for redesigning hospital services, optimising patient flow and experience, and ultimately enhancing patient outcomes.
