Health, ageing and social services: waste in the system

Health, ageing and social services: waste in the system

QLD
Jul 18
The second event of the CEDA Queensland Health ageing and social services series highlights why removing waste from Australia’s healthcare system is critical to underwriting its future and delivering improved outcomes for patients.

Speakers

Professor Paul Glasziou, Director, Institute for Evidence-Based Healthcare, Bond University
Dr Steve Hambleton, Deputy Chair, MBS Review Taskforce and Member, Health Care Homes Advisory Implementation Group
Jacqueline Kelly, Non Executive Director, UnitingCare Queensland
Russell Mason, Chief Executive, Suncare Community Services

Event overview

Join policy influencers and senior sector leaders for insights into the waste that makes our healthcare system unsustainable and ask how it can be better identified and removed.  

Much work has been done on value-based care.  Our growing population and funding constraints mean more spending will be redirected to high value care while overdiagnosis and over treatment rates must fall and low value interventions, reduced or eliminated.

The quality of care, patient outcomes and the health of the very system itself depend on a new definition of sustainable.  

CEDA’s 2019 Health, ageing and social services series examines proven solutions, removing waste from the system and its sustainability.
