10:00 AM PANEL DISCUSSION: Future Prospects for Healthcare Provision

Changing patterns of disease and improvements in medical and communications technology are contributing to the momentum for a new approach in the design of hospitals and delivery of health.

To ensure that the Australian healthcare system is responsive to current and future demands, this panel will discuss:
  • What’s next for healthcare and where do we see ourselves in 15-20 years?
  • Population growth – Why is it important to assess the population coming in and out of your hospitals and what can it tell you about future care delivery system needs?
  • Investing in new models of integrated care and reviewing funding models
  • Delivering the benefits of digital healthcare and avoiding costly mistakes
  • Workforce reform and the concept of workforce flexibility – continuous reassessment of skill mixes and having more responsive education and training programs


3:40 PM CASE STUDY: Building a Digital Health Ecosystem to Support Sustainability, Growth, Integration and Innovation

Calvary aims to deliver person and family centred care, across its public and private hospitals, residential communities and community care services, to continuously improve, integrate, grow and innovate. This requires supportive culture, processes, data and technology to maximise the opportunities presented by information and the digital age:
  • Smarter through efficient evidence-based practices both in our own work and at the point of care;
  • More agile using technology and standards to enable and measure the outcomes of change; and
  • More responsive by using technology to monitor, predict and enable more proactive population and individual care
