2016 Expert Speaker Panel Includes:

Improving operational efficiency and health outcomes through innovation in technology

Healthcare reform, challenging productivity targets and increased consumer expectation of the care they will receive is driving the integration of new technologies across Australia’s healthcare system. But as current new build and redevelopment projects look to capitalise on the advancement of available technologies, what considerations are required when you are looking too implement an effective IT planning, design and integration strategy and what are the operational challenges you will face further down the line?

Without doubt the need for investment in technology is clear, but where should you invest and how can your future proof your facility in the ever evolving world of technological advancements, changing business models and shifting patient expectations?

Healthcare Efficiency through Technology 2016 will explore solutions to the challenges faced during the procurement, design, delivery and operation of IT systems in healthcare facilities. The program will also look ahead to the increasingly integrated and connected healthcare system of 2020 and beyond where informed and demanding patients are now partners in their own healthcare.

What’s new in Australian Healthcare Week 2016?

In 2015 the event cemented its position as Australia’s largest one-stop-shop for healthcare stakeholders looking to develop strategies to address the challenges faced during infrastructure development and ICT integration across our healthcare facilities. In 2016 I’m excited to announce the following new additions to Australian Healthcare Week.

  • New conferences on Healthcare Procurement and Aged Care
  • A new and expanded exhibition lay out including specific zones for Healthcare Technology, Medical Devices and Healthcare Facilities Design and Development
  • 3 on floor stages in the exhibition hall for healthcare futurists, cutting edge technology showcases and product demonstrations

Australian Healthcare Week is the only event that addresses healthcare infrastructure development, ICT management, procurement and aged care all under one roof.

What’s on the agenda for 2016?

  • Australian Healthcare Week Exhibition: 15-17 March
  • Health Facilities Design and Development Summit: 15-16 March
  • Healthcare Efficiency through Technology Summit: 15-16 March
  • Healthcare Procurement Summit: 15-16 March
  • Planning for Adaption/Retrofitting Healthcare Facilities Focus Day: 17 March
  • Aged Care Focus Day: 17 March

You spoke we listened.

Feedback from our 2015 delegates was that they would have liked the option to attend certain sessions in different summits taking place a the event, so for 2016 your pass gets you access to the three main summits taking place on day 1 & 2.

Healthcare is going through a massive transformation driven by advances in technology that presents us with new ways of delivering services more efficiently and effectively. Join us at Australian Healthcare Week 2016 where we will aim to rethink our current approach to the design and operation of tomorrow’s healthcare facilities to ensure that we are able to respond effectively and efficiently to the health problems facing Australia in the 21st Century.
