HEALTHCARE PROCUREMENT SUMMIT 2016
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
