Event overview

Australia's health system was designed over a generation ago. Industry and all levels of government agree that transformation of Australia's health system is imperative. Australia must maximise the use of our innovative and pioneering health expertise while ensuring affordability and access to end users. Achieving this will mean balancing social and economic policy.

CEDA will investigate the implications the industry needs to consider to ensure that Australia has enough vital services to cope with the future intensive demands of its population.

This event brings together industry leaders to share their insights following the release of the CEDA policy perspective report Healthcare: Reform or ration. The report examines the success of Australia's biomedicine sector and issues to be addressed, across financing, policy and education, for sector reform.
