Hospitals and healthcare providers internationally are facing an unprecedented demand for services. Input costs are continually rising and so are consumer expectations. Even with bigger healthcare budgets, it will not be possible to keep providing quality care unless we significantly rethink and reconfigure the way services are planned and delivered.

Health System Innovation is the agreed name of the game, and there are many ways to approach it. Some of them involve lessons learned in different industries, others have been developed within healthcare itself.

Sustainable Healthcare Transformation is a major international conference in Hobart, the capital of the enchanting and highly creative Australian island of Tasmania. The home of sub-Antarctic forests, pristine wilderness and coastlines, fine wines, cheeses and woollen goods, the wonderful MONA gallery, and the 2014 Man Booker novel winner, Richard Flanagan.
