We are entering a period of seismic shift in aged care provision that will impact not only on consumers, but also for aged care providers that will require a rethink of current business models to be able to adapt and remain competitive in the new consumer led market place.

With such major changes taking place in the balance of power between the consumer and aged care providers, never has there been more need to reassess your approach to consumer needs and demands and understand the changes you need to put in place in response to the major reforms taking place across the sector.

New to Australian Healthcare Week,this focus day will explore solutions to the following challenges:

  • Consumer Directed Care (CDC) – the impact on consumers and providers
  • Remaining Competitive in a Consumer Driven Market Place
  • Revising your business model in response to government reform and consumer demand
  • Communicating with the consumer – challenges in planning and contracting support services
  • Workforce requirements – do you have the necessary skills to administer CDC?
  • Understanding the Technology Investments that can Bring Long Term Financial Savings and Improved Patient Care
  • Innovations in Technology to Enhance and Enable Ageing in Place
  • Rethinking the way we provide care for people living with dementia.
  • Moving Away from Traditional Models of Aged Care, to a Restorative and Teaching Model
  • The design and delivery of retrofit and new build aged care facilities

  • Southern Cross Care

What’s new at Australian Healthcare Week 2016?

In 2015 the event cemented its position as Australia’s largest one-stop-shop for healthcare stakeholders looking to develop strategies to address the challenges faced during infrastructure development and ICT integration across our healthcare facilities. In 2016 I’m excited to announce the following new additions to Australian Healthcare Week.

  • New conferences on Healthcare Procurement and Aged Care
  • A new and expanded exhibition lay out including specific zones for Healthcare Technology, Medical Devices and Healthcare Facilities Design and Development
  • 3 on floor stages in the exhibition hall for healthcare futurists, cutting edge technology showcases and product demonstrations

Australian Healthcare Week is the only event that addresses healthcare infrastructure development, ICT management, procurement and aged care all under one roof.
