Roundtable: AHHA's Blueprint Refresh

2 September 2019, Brisbane

In 2017 the AHHA developed, with health leaders for health leaders, a blueprint on how to transform our healthcare system into a fit for purpose 21st century system that would meet the needs and expectations of Australians. Since then, the Council of Australian Governments has agreed a number of health reforms aligning with the recommendations put forward in AHHA’s Healthy people, healthy systems. The 2018 Heads of Agreement now signed by 6 of the 8 states and territories acknowledges the need for new long term health system reforms.

AHHA’s Blueprint Refresh Roundtable brings together AHHA members and other Australian health leaders to evaluate the progress made to date against Healthy people, healthy systems and to tease out key policy issues that need to be addressed in order to implement outcomes-focused, value-based care in Australia.

The Roundtable will be followed by a dinner during which the 2019 Sidney Sax medal will be presented to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the development and improvement of the Australian healthcare system in the field of health services policy, organisation, delivery and research.

Webinar: Improving the Patient Experience - How to develop a strategy by using data and digital solutions to advance person-centred care

26 July 2019

Dr Avi Ratnanesan, Chief Executive Officer of Energesse presented a webinar which discussed how many health and care services are seeking to improve their patient experience (PX) and consumer engagement but are challenged in doing so. Some providers are measuring experiences in real-time, however while they are drowning in data, they are still starved of wisdom. In parallel, patients and carers are increasingly valuing empathetic care and a seamless, integrated journey.

If you missed the discussion, the PowerPoint presentation and recording of the webinar is now available in the past events section of the website.
