Healthy Systems

Our vision for a healthy Australia requires health leadership that is innovative, dedicated to improving outcomes for communities. We will see such things as:

  • Health services, models of care, workforce, infrastructure and funding arrangements strategically planned in a non-partisan manner to deliver health system redesign.
  • The governance of health services covering individuals, and primary, community and hospital services, and being regionally administered and monitored and providing a continuum of care.
  • Health service planning being robust, based on strong data across all sectors of the health system and innovative at the regional, state and territory and national levels.
  • The health system being nimble and able to take up improvements in care quickly. New treatments and technologies are evaluated and adopted (where suitable and sustainable). Low value and superseded treatments are assessed and de-funded in a timely manner.
