Blueprint for a Post-2020 National Health Agreement

Healthy people, healthy systems is a solid blueprint with a range of short, medium and long term recommendations on how to reorientate our healthcare system to focus on patient outcomes and value rather than throughput and vested interests. It maps out how to transform our healthcare system into a fit for purpose 21st century system that will meet the needs and expectations of Australians.

The Blueprint has been developed through substantial consultation with, and input from, AHHA’s Board, broad membership and stakeholders across the hospital, primary and community health sectors—including clinicians, academics, policymakers, administrators and consumers.
