The theme of variability in healthcare was a core area of focus at the Australian Healthcare Week Executive Roundtable Discussion in March 2018.

Hosted by Wolters Kluwer, the discussion was led by 12 key representatives from across the Australian Healthcare sector such as Alfred Health, Healthscope, Princess Alexandra Hospital, Queensland Health, Metro North Hospital and Health Service and Calvary care; and explored the major challenges associated with providing a consistent approach to healthcare delivery and the opportunities to improve this in the coming years.
