The Australian Healthcare System as a Market. GAP workshop report

How can we improve the understanding of health data, reduce waste and, in the longer term, improve clinical efficiency and consumer choice? These were some of the key topics discussed in a strategic workshop titled ‘The Australian Healthcare System as a Market’. The GAP workshop report has now been released.

The meeting was hosted by public policy institute Global Access Partners (GAP), the Australian Centre for Health Research (ACHR) and the Australian National Consultative Committee on Health. The event brought together an audience of health practitioners, industry leaders and consumer advocates. It featured David Jonas, Head of Health Market Quality Program at Capital Markets Cooperative Research Centre and Director of Lorica Health, as a keynote speaker.

The workshop was the second meeting in a series of discussions on a sustainable healthcare system started by GAP and its partners in December 2013. The workshop was sponsored by GAP, ACHR, Capital Markets CRC and Cisco.
