Technology will be a key theme at the 8th Annual Australian Healthcare Week at the ICC, Sydney. Australian Healthcare Week is the largest Healthcare gathering within the region with 5,000 attendees expected for 2018. The event deals with State and Federal Departments, Local Area Health Districts, Public and Private Hospitals, Pharmacy, Aged Care Facilities and Retirement Villages.
The healthcare industry in Australia has grown significantly over the last decade, and now accounts for $1 out of every $10 spent, and is also the nations biggest employer, employing 1 in every 8 Australians.
The ageing population means that the demand on healthcare services will only increase, and faced with a limited budget, the focus must naturally shift to how we can do more with less.
Central to achieving this will be the improved integration of the clinical and non clinical realms.
With that in mind, Australian Healthcare Week has been designed to bring together the clinical and non clinical under one roof, to address:
- Facilities – designing fit for purpose digital hospitals on time and on budget
- Data – leveraging patient data to make better clinical decisions
- Efficiency – driving cost savings and more effective operations
- Patient Experience – placing the patient at the forefront to enhance their experience
- New Models of Care – applying technology and innovation to create quality services
- Change Management – overcoming challenges around commissioning a complex digital environment
- Integrated Care – delivering patient-centred care and quality healthcare outcomes
- Procurement – driving more value out of your contracts
- Leadership – empowering nurses and clinicians to be leaders of change
