    The New Health Mandate: Realising Australia’s Healthcare Potential

    Rapid technological advancements and a market of fragmented, patient driven solutions clutter the healthcare industry’s immediate future.  Healthcare policymakers will need to navigate diverse stakeholder interests to attract funding and continue delivering a world-class healthcare system. The Productivity Commission has tasked the Commonwealth with reconfiguring healthcare systems around the principles of patient-centred care within five years, is this timeframe realistic? How can healthcare reform specifically enable the economy? Can healthcare leaders more directly stimulate public conversation to activate governments? Will digitization ease or intensify friction between federal, state, and local healthcare?

    Achieving Interoperability: The Price of Optimal Care

    Clinicians rely on the seamless flow of information for optimal patient outcomes, yet healthcare institutions remain splintered between incompatible operating systems. Budget constraints are the fundamental barrier to the systematic adoption of interoperable technology. Must governments prioritise funding a contemporary healthcare interface? What are the most significant regulatory roadblocks to digital health? Is standardisation viable with our existing digital infrastructure, or should regulatory bodies focus on the advent of new technologies? Which technologies have proved the most transformative this past year, and what is on the horizon?

    People at the Core: The Argument for Clinician-Led Transformation

    As the economic constraints on the healthcare industry tighten, the prospect of technological renewal appears increasingly shallow. A deeper shift in mindset is required to overcome intergenerational resistances to digital transformation. How can organisations overcome digital apathy and transformation fatigue? What more can leaders do to drive system adoption and remove the barriers to buy-in from clinicians? Is it judicious to allocate government funding for professional development? Why are existing mental health practices failing younger clinicians? Is workplace culture evolving in tandem with digital advances in hospital management?

    Continuous Health: The Path to Patient Empowerment

    The healthcare industry is responding to a global shift towards consumer empowerment. Deep appreciation for the social determinants of healthcare outcomes is motivating the industry to reframe the patient experience and holistically enable wellbeing. What initiatives are being pursued to resolve information asymmetry and empower patients? How are digital marketplace experiences in other sectors translating into the healthcare space? How are clinicians changing to deliver the outcomes that matter to patients? Are patient demands for digital health inflated or does popular opinion accurately reflect the sector’s capabilities?

    Commanding Change: Bringing Leadership into the Digital Age

    The calibre of leaders is being tested as old and new models of healthcare collide. The ability of leaders to meet the rapidly shifting expectations of a society embedded in technology will bear directly on the health of the nation. How are the demands on healthcare leaders changing? What skills will enable healthcare leaders to succeed in an increasingly dynamic and transdisciplinary future? How are healthcare leaders ensuring their input is being heard in high-level government decision making? Are sufficient measures in place to foster interpersonal skills given the trajectory of technology in healthcare?

    Health Alliances: A Collaborative Charge for Contemporary Healthcare

    There is massive capacity for partnerships across the private and public healthcare spectrum. New market entrants from the technology space can further elevate the healthcare industry, but contend with a dense public-private regulatory environment. Why is there resistance to applying the world of commercialisation to healthcare? How can industry more actively involve external parties in the market? How can government and private industry advance relations to convert research into commercial success? Will the growing appetite for collaboration between insurers and healthcare providers transform into meaningful action?

    New Health Gateways: Accessing the Future of Care

    Renewed political and public attention on Australia’s healthcare system is creating momentum for policymakers to meaningfully change the way we measure patient experiences and outcomes. Leaders are reimagining service delivery for the era of patient centred care to secure affordability, accessibility, and sustainability. What is being done to address the lack of health literacy in Australia? How are payment models evolving to reflect the changing criteria for optimal patient outcomes? What services are improving access to care and reducing health inequalities across the nation? Are public-private partnerships essential for optimising service delivery?
