Event Overview

Whole-Of-Sector Collaboration for a Future Proof National Healthcare System

The need for an interconnected, inclusive, and sustainable healthcare system is great than ever. To future-proof public sector healthcare and address underlying systemic challenges, integrating the voices of the workforce and patients with enhanced technological innovation is paramount.

Creating a Whole-of-Sector, Digitally-Enabled & Interconnected Healthcare System

  • What are the greatest challenges and impacts of a today’s fragmented and siloed system, and why is so much of it chronic? How might this inform potential preventative, protective and truly effective solutions?
  • What opportunities are available for trust and effective communication, collaboration and partnerships across health services, policy and even across community? (e.g. hospitals, out-of-hospital, government, families)
  • How can we best approach the use of technology, virtual mediums, and digital infrastructure for person-focused, inclusive and digitally accessible care for all?
  • How can we best leverage electronic records and digital to improve quality of care and strengthen multidisciplinary/cross-organisational collaboration?
