Health Improvement Conference

11 OCTOBER 2019

In association with the Healthcare Leadership Academy

 

Theme: Driving healthcare improvement through the Quadruple Aim

 

Overview

The world over, health systems grapple with the challenge of being able to simultaneously provide better care, better health, and at lower costs  in order to improve the health of populations. However, the potential to achieve improved patient care, health outcomes, and lower costs may be compromised by the healthcare experiences encountered when care is provided. Central to any effective health system is an engaged and productive workforce – comprised of people who find a sense of meaning and fulfilment in their work – as this might improve the quality of healthcare and ultimately, the overall patient experience.

This year’s theme: “Driving healthcare improvement through the Quadruple Aim” provides a platform to explore the complex healthcare work environment through the lens of patients, healthcare professionals and leaders as well as health-focused individuals and organisations. It seeks to help healthcare workers develop and improve the skills required to enhance wellbeing whilst improving care, health, and lowering costs through connecting, engaging, and interacting with leaders from both the healthcare and other industries.
