IHF World Hospital Congress 2018 — Day 1

The World Hospital Congress of the International Hospital Federation (IHF) dates back to 1929, when it was first held in Atlantic City, USA as a biennial event. It is the unique global forum where multidisciplinary exchange of knowledge, expertise and experiences in health sector management and service delivery is facilitated.

The Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association was honoured to host the 42nd IHF World Hospital Congress in Brisbane from 10 to 12 October 2018.

Over 1,000 health leaders from around the world came to Brisbane to discuss key issues around the shift to value-based care, the role of hospitals in the broader medical neighbourhood and how data and technology are transforming healthcare delivery under the overarching theme Innovate |Integrate | Inspire: How can healthcare evolve to meet 21st century demands?

With a program that included 10 major keynote addresses, 46 sessions on 3 key themes, over 160 speakers and 100+ poster presentations from more than 40 countries, the 42nd Word Hospital Congress provided a forum to share journeys to date and solutions for the future.
