Health leaders and industry experts

committed to raising the profile of digital health innovation

and doing something about it

Creating a New Conversation

HISA is pleased to partner with Accenture on the Innovating Health thought leadership series.

Using round-table events as a catalyst, targeting topical health industry challenges, we aim to raise the profile of the digital health innovation agenda in healthcare. We seek to bring together health leaders with industry experts, challenging the zeitgeist with disruptive perspectives, harnessing our collective ideation and ultimately generating new solutions to stimulate sector change.

We are creating a new conversation. Never before has the Australian health system experienced such an imperative to change and the need to transform is vital for both system sustainability and improved population health.

Past Roundtables

Roundtable 1 - Culture of Innovation
Guide Simon Terry The Culture of Innovation's Simon Terry
Date 27 April 2016
Location Sydney
About How can healthcare build a culture of innovation and ultimately transform to be a better connected system? There may be no shortage of good ideas, but there are still many internal, organisational and structural barriers which make it difficult to bring those ideas into reality. We need to start thinking differently about how we approach healthcare in general. That is, how we engage with health consumers and patients around their health literacy and personal well-being, how we manage good ideas to projects and acceptance of failure, and how we collaborate and work together as key stakeholders in building an asynchronous healthcare system.

Date 29 June 2016

About The Internet of Things has revolutionary capability to create a precise and personalized health care system. Although the IoT is relatively new, applications include the monitoring of health conditions using vital signs and medical devices, collecting personal biometric and tracking data through wearable devices, opportunities for real-time monitoring, smart home technologies and devices that can provide feedback for physical and mental health conditions. It also includes sensors and internet-enabled devices including smartphones, that are interconnected and intelligent with the ability for algorithm based decision making.

Date 27 July 2016

About Cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly important topic to all health stakeholders involved in data collection and use – healthcare service providers, medical device manufacturers, health insurers, pharmaceutical companies, healthcare professionals and individual patients. How can we innovate and reform while dealing with increasing and more sophisticated cyber threats? There are issues around governance, risk appetite, protecting and sharing information and organisational preparedness. This is an important aspect of innovating, and one of the most challenging.

Roundtable 4 - The Blending of Health and Human Services
Guide Jason Potts Health and Human Services's Jason Potts
Date 1 September 2016
Location Canberra
About Is it innovative to digitise the activities we already do? New technologies, data exchange and associated governance models allow us to think differently about system innovation and the provision of services in the digital age. It is believed the accelerating pace of change will be driven by the health consumer, and those funding and delivering services need to innovate to meet consumer needs or be left behind. The question now is how to shift our focus to above-the-line innovation and redefine how we deliver those services.

About Building on key themes that have been highlighted through the Innovating Health Series to date, the culture of innovation in healthcare will be further explored in this event to wrap up the year. Focusing our efforts on health system innovation specifically, rather than just product innovation is difficult but people agree is what is needed. How can our health leaders make valuable changes to the culture of innovation in healthcare highlighting system innovation changes and collaboration rather than just organisational led change?
