Redefining Health Care Funding - Technology as an enabler for health funding reform in Australia - webinar 3

How can technology enable health care funding reforms? Today's healthcare funding scheme rewards high-volume transactions, rather than high-quality outcomes. Despite the recent funding reform, our patient care today is characterised by costly inefficiencies. Appropriate resource allocation and hospital funding therefore play a central role in improving the overall health care experience in Australia.

At the College of Business and Law we want to explore how technology can help to reform our health funding and improve performance measurement outcomes across the medical network. For our third, and final, Webinar we have invited leading researchers and industry partners in these areas to share their insights with us.

Hosted by Karin Verspoor, Dean of the School of Computing Technologies at RMIT University, our expert panel includes:

  • James Downie, CEO Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA)
  • Professor Kerryn Butler-Henderson, Director of Digital Health in the School of Health and Biomedical Sciences (RMIT University)
  • Associate Professor Gilian Vesty, Researcher at the School of Accounting, Information Systems and Supply Chain (RMIT University)

With a particular focus on the classification of workforce costing and the current technology capabilities across the healthcare system, we look forward to welcoming you at our final webinar of this series!
