Who is doing better at digital health and why? Tertiary or Primary?
Tertiary care hasn't talked to primary care a lot over the years. It's a bit LHNs are from mars, and PHNs are from venus. So which group is winning, if you had to assess progress. And why? Can we work as one better? Should we even try? Some great panelists from both walks of life will debate in the tradition of the great debates.
How important is digital health infrastructure in evolving our system to manage chronic care and outcomes based funding
Digital health works best in making systems more efficient when outcomes based funding is in play. Which suits a shift in our system from It's a data thing. .Paying for outcomes in health is far more efficient than paying for throughput of patients, as we do in primary care now and a lot of tertiary still. But how do you get from one side of a funding set up to the other in good time.. Can we do it rapidly? How long does it have to take? Or should we never shift over fully?
Technologist, doctor, patient: if you could only pick one, which one...and why?
It's the old story. Love one, marry one, drop one. But which one. You can't have them al in this debate which aims to bring out, how serious we really are around 'patient centric', where we are and where it is heading in the near term. Also, if patient centric is real, where are the lines of responsibility moving forward between the clinician, the patient, the technologists, and probably, the regulators. How real is our institutional commitment to patient centric? What role is digital playing in handing power to the patient really.


Moderated by a Big C consultant, and with an expert panel, the audience will attempt a short policy/white paper on the fly that brings focus to a difficult but important issue facing digital health. This session: a roadmap for establishing a viable regime for standards and governance of healthcare data sharing among healthcare providers, tech vendors and government.

A unique opportunity to hear from – and directly question – Australia’s critical thinkers, influential clinical and technology decision makers who are transforming the healthcare landscape. Our new program features three 'great debates', an audience participation policy hack, left of field medical story tellers, and an innovation talent beauty show. You will learn. But mostly you will have fun.
