    Leading the Health System to a Sustainable and Interconnected Future

    While the health system is always evolving, it has not always evolved at the pace we have witnessed in recent years.  Healthcare executives must continue to reinvent their businesses – designed for methodologic change – in line with the speed of the market. This Session deals with the factors enabling and arresting change in our wider health system, from financial pressure and contested funding models through to regulatory frameworks and shifting market demands. We will consider on a macro-level the co-operative changes required to align incentives and continue delivering the highest standards of equitable care to all Australians.

    Prioritising Change to Reach Digital Maturity

    The pandemic has accelerated digital transformation in the health industry. But this acceleration must be appropriately paced for both individual organisations and the wider system. Health businesses that understand their own digital maturity can strike a distinction between what is essential now and what will set them on the right path for adaptive, intelligent, and interconnected service delivery. In this Session, we will hear how health businesses are assessing their own digital maturity, revising their information architecture, and improving their analytical capabilities to embed digital at the heart of care delivery.

    Reimagining Care Delivery to Extend the Patient Journey

    The wider health ecosystem is changing and offering diverse settings to receive care. The pandemic defied preconceptions of the technical feasibility of digital-first health experiences, but careful attention is now needed to ensure the sustainability of technology-enabled care models. In this Session, we’ll hear how players from across the health system are realising a different vision of care delivery. From the fragmentation of care sites and the integration of care around the patient through to consumer adoption of telehealth services, we will hear how technology is empowering patients with new avenues of engaging with an interconnected health system.

    Empowering People to Facilitate Meaningful Change

    While advanced technology is a core enabler of change, it is people who must drive and ultimately experience transformation. To turn a vision into a lived reality, health businesses require strong change management and courageous executive leadership, and thoughtful consideration of end-users and patients is central to this undertaking. In this Session, we will hear from health institutions at varying stages of their transformations, uncovering executive and frontline perspectives, to better understand how they are facilitating change without losing sight of the people who are being asked to change.
