FUTURE OF GOVERNMENT SERIES – Reimagining healthcare in Australia: The journey from telehealth to 21st century design

IPAA Queensland in partnership with Deloitte is pleased to host our third Future of Government webinar – Reimagining healthcare in Australia:  The journey from telehealth to 21st century design.

Virtual health is not just limited to using telehealth services but extends to such things as wearing health supporting gadgets and sensors, from mobile health to artificial intelligence, from robotic carers to electronic records. Deloitte.

Advances in virtual health have rapidly accelerated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Virtual health is now delivering a broad range of health and community-based services to improve and support health and wellbeing. But what do users want? What should virtual health look like? When should it be used? What are the opportunities to drive healthcare transformation for better health outcomes and for a stronger economy?

Join us for an informative and lively discussion featuring influential health professionals who will explore these questions and more. Our panel of speakers includes Shaun Drummond (Deloitte), Clair Sullivan (Digital Health Research Network, UQ) and Luke Baxby (Deloitte) who will share insights from the national consumer insights surveys. The surveys focus on consumer preferences and expectations in healthcare.

The discussion will draw on a national project, Reimagining Healthcare in Australia, which is being conducted by Deloitte, the Digital Health CRC, Consumer Health Forum and Curtin University.
