Politically-Feasible Health Reform: What Ever Will It Take? – The Centre for Independent Studies

Politically-Feasible Health Reform: What Ever Will It Take?

rr21-imageDespite the ever-escalating cost of health posing severe fiscal sustainability challenges, health reform has been dumped even more firmly in the politically too-hard basket since the ‘Mediscare’ federal election. A politically-feasible reform strategy is required to catalyse much-needed innovation in the health sector and deliver more cost-effective healthcare.

An expert panel – featuring Dr Peta Seaton, Terry Barnes, health consultant and commentator, and Gerald Thomas, health entrepreneur – will discuss what it will take to achieve meaningful change in the $155 billion health sector.

This special evening event will discuss the issues raised in the CIS’ Health Innovation Program’s just-released report Medi-Vation: ‘Health Innovation Communities’ for Medicare Payment and Service Reform.
