The Healthcare Leaders Forum is firmly established as the premier national event for Healthcare executives, congregating key stakeholders for top-line perspectives on management, policy and innovation.

Australian Healthcare is approaching a moment of distinction. Spurred by the burgeoning expectations of patients, government and commercial stakeholders, industry leaders are advancing healthcare delivery through the strategic integration of technology. As old and new models of healthcare collide and increasingly empowered patients drive demand for more efficient, affordable and high-quality care, the industry’s capacity to adapt will be critical to its future – and the health of the nation.

Bringing together the nation’s leading Healthcare executives from across the public and private spectrum in a confidential event, this is the ideal platform to formulate strategies to successfully overcome the challenges of the future and improve patient outcomes today.
