Future roundtables

Upcoming roundtable

Those working in healthcare for a while know that there is a lot of innovations and valuable research within healthcare. A lot of this though is untapped, fragmented and siloed. Translation of knowledge and innovations across healthcare continues to be a challenge. If we are investing considerable funding and effort into these areas, how much are we benefiting? How can be innovative with data science and analytics with vast amounts of data that research and evidence is generating? What would be required to fast track change and build scale to things we know that work or potentially work? How do we implement innovative change into a large scale and conservative delivery environment?

The Culture of Innovation in Healthcare with Dr Vishaal Kishore and Simon Terry

MELBOURNE           Wednesday 23 NOVEMBER           12:00 – 2:00 PM Lunch


Held in Melbourne on 23 November, 2016. This invite only event brought together healthcare leaders with our innovation guides Vishaal Kishore and Simon Terry at a focused health leader lunch to re-examine the Culture of Innovation in Healthcare with a particular focus on ‘system innovation’.

Vishaal KishoreWe welcomed back to series Simon Terry who led our first conversation on culture, together with Prof
Vishaal Kishore as our discussion guides to explore the challenges of health system innovation and cultural change. Both guides brought different experiences and perspectives on system innovation in healthcare. The aim was to build threads of a story acknowledging that people, culture and change is a really difficult problem but there is opportunity.

The discussion was the most thought provoking and pragmatic to date with a number commitments from attendees to pick up the outcomes from the session and identify “crucibles” for change. Actions to take back to their own organisation that contribute to system innovation and change. This was a great outcome for series which seeks to move away from issues towards practical change.

The Blending of Health and Human Services with Jason Potts

CANBERRA           Thursday 1 September           12:00 – 2:00 PM Lunch


Held in Canberra on 1 September, this invite only event brought together healthcare leaders with our innovation guide Jason Potts at a focused health leader lunch to explore and discuss the Blending of Health and Human Services.

Human ServicesAs data related to individuals, and service transactions becomes more available and customer-oriented, the lines between organisations merge and blend. Data being gathered and used to support patient and customer-centric services raises questions about how we define and talk about care. Should we be talking about the individual patient / client / consumer – and not aged care / health care / social care?

Digital Innovation and Cybersecurity with Theresa Meadows

MELBOURNE           Wednesday 27 July           7:00 – 9:00 AM Breakfast


Held in Melbourne on 27 July, prior to HIC’s third day. This invite only event brought together healthcare leaders with our innovation guide Theresa Meadows at a focused health leader breakfast to explore and discuss Digital Innovation and Cybersecurity.

CybersecurityFeaturing international guest Theresa Meadows, Co-Chair of USA Department of Health and Human Services Health Care Industry Cybersecurity Task Force. As digitisation of hospitals and healthcare increases larger banks of collated data eventuate. This increases significant risk for organisations and health providers responsible for data security in a time where consumer awareness and expectations are increasing around data use, privacy and security. This discussion explored cybersecurity in healthcare, organisational requirements, and combined a wide range of discussions on aspects such as premise vs cloud, risks of paper based records, security of health, and payment transactions.

While embracing with digital programs to support health system change and digital health innovation there, are inherent and increased risks. This roundtable dissected the question: how do I balance innovation against risk?

Together, we explored questions including: where are we in relation to IoT in healthcare? What is the potential given the future of the internet? How do we generate and get new ideas into healthcare? Do we leverage and learn off other industries and sectors? (Imitation can be a core enabler for innovation). There is significant research completed in this area from the university and research sector, which can be incorporated through collaboration and partnering.
