Making the most of technology in healthcare

About this video:

The Productivity Commission’s latest report, Leveraging digital technology in healthcare, finds making better use of emerging technology could ease pressures on our healthcare system and save over $5 billion a year. The report shows that improving the collection and use of health data, better embedding remote care services into mainstream practice, and harnessing the power of AI could significantly reduce the cost of providing care while maintaining or even improving patient outcomes.

So how can Australian healthcare providers seize the opportunities presented by digital technology? And what role does government have to play?

Join Commissioner Catherine de Fontenay from the Productivity Commission as she discusses the full findings of this new research in conversation with a panel of healthcare leaders and digital health experts. Following this discussion, the panel will take questions from the online audience.
