Exclusive Roundtable Event

Intelligent Procurement in Healthcare

Presented by Bob Beusekom, Group Director Corporate and Shared Services at Mater Health Services

Wednesday 10 July 2019 | Brisbane

Healthcare has plenty of innovation.
The problem is that these innovations are fragmented – we don’t just need product innovation in healthcare, we need system innovation.”

Simon Terry,
Change Agents Worldwide

Knowledge Translation in Healthcare:

They sentenced me to twenty years of boredom
for trying to change the system from within.”

Leonard Cohen, as quoted by Health Leader Roundtable Participant

 
 
Responding to Changes in Funding and Payments:

We have been here before and we know the complexities.
It is not so much what can be done, but how it can be implemented.”

Dr Jeremy Sammut Centre for Independent Studies

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.

Roundtable 2 - The Internet of Things
Guide David Jonas The Internet of Thing's David Jonas
Date 29 June 2016
Location Brisbane
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.

Roundtable 3 - Cybersecurity
Guides Theresa Meadows and Prof Trish Williams Cybersecurity's Theresa Meadows
Date 27 July 2016
Location Melbourne
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.

Roundtable 5 - System Innovation
Guide Simon Terry System Innovation's Simon Terry
Date 23 November 2016
Location Melbourne
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?

Roundtable 6 - Knowledge Translation
Guide Dr Tamika Heiden Knowledge Translation's Tamika Heiden
Date 5 April 2017
Location Canberra
About 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?

Roundtable 7 - Responding to Changes in Funding and Payments
Guide Dr Jeremy Sammut Responding to Changes in Funding and Payment's Jeremy Sammut
Date 3 May 2017
Location Sydney
About With expected MBS review outcomes and follow-on changes in funding and billing in healthcare there is potential for some notable changes in the business and service models of healthcare. With a focus on funding changes to build robustness and system sustainability, address specific patient cohort treatment needs, and provide access to more services in the home or community settings there is the potential for considerable change in the way healthcare is accessed and delivered. Where is the potential for innovation in the evolving models of healthcare funding and billing? Can we do more irrespective of funding?

Roundtable 8 - Innovative Private Models of Healthcare
Guide Nicholas Marlow Innovative Private Models of Healthcare's Nicholas Marlow
Date 28 June 2017
Location Brisbane
About In a time when disruption and health system change is constantly being highlighted and discussed, how can we learn from innovative models of healthcare. Increasingly the private sector is developing new business services and models of care which challenge traditional service delivery. How do we learn from, harness and scale these innovative business models?

At the same time, a customer experience focus and patient experience is increasingly being brought to the front of our thinking. User experience, user design, co-design are all words used to describe how we should be planning for future services. This begs the question “do you know who your customer is?”. Noting the triple aims of healthcare – enhancing patient experience, improving population health, and reducing costs—how do we factor in the quadruple aim – improving the work-life balance of health care providers, including clinicians and staff? Do we include professional and organisational staff as healthcare customers?
