2016 Expert Speaker Panel Includes:


Across Australia, the current model of care is becoming economically unstable. Healthcare budgets are feeling the strain and with hospitals accounting for nearly half of the yearly spend, new ways must be found to control costs.

Developing a more efficient approach to procurement has the potential to lower costs across the healthcare system as supplies are second only to labor as a source of hospital spending. New to Australian Healthcare Week in 2016, Healthcare Procurement will feature best practice case studies from across Australia and New Zealand who will share the strategies they have put in place to achieve system efficiency, reduce spend and ultimately enable them to redirect money back to the front line for improved health outcomes.

Key themes will include:

Delivering next generation healthcare procurement in NSW

Moving healthcare procurement into the 21st century

Procurement functional leadership: A New Zealand guide to transforming government procurement practice

Optimising supplier/stakeholder outcomes through effective procurement strategies

Health Alliance NZ: Identifying aggregate purchasing opportunities

Procurement models for complex infrastructure projects

Opportunities and challenges in medical technology procurement
