The Future of Health: New Perspectives to Transform Healthcare Delivery
In developed countries across the world, healthcare spending is rising steadily as ageing populations, an epidemic of chronic disease, advances in biomedical knowledge, increased digital healthcare innovations and higher public expectations place additional demands on services.
In Australia, for example, health expenditure rose by an average of 5% a year in real terms over the last decade, outstripping GDP growth of 2.8%. In locations worldwide, healthcare delivery systems are now reaching breaking-point and there is an urgent need to develop new working practices innovative business and funding models.
The University of Queensland (UQ) Business School’s experts bring new perspectives to this debate. With backgrounds in areas such as innovation, management, strategy, marketing, finance, accounting, information systems, economics and technology, they work alongside clinicians and healthcare leaders to help address the challenges in the Future of Health.
Through our work with private and public healthcare providers, patients and families, we are internationally recognised as thought leaders in the healthcare sector.
