2017 AHW Prospectus

Generate stronger leads and enhance brand differentiation at Australian Healthcare Week 2017

Suppliers to the healthcare sector trust IQPC to raise their profile, initiate conversations that help deliver their message and support their business growth in a complex market, with a complex decision making chain.

As both public and private sector facilities reassess their critical spend, the one thing that you can guarantee is that the “easy business” doesn’t exist anymore. Every procurement decision has to demonstrate a clear ROI, with innovative, cost-saving technologies more important than previous relationships.

IQPC are uniquely positioned to help solution providers to the healthcare design and construction industry through Australian Healthcare Week. The Australian Healthcare Week 2016 was our biggest and best event yet. So much so that we have outgrown our venue, and next year will take up residence at the newly built ICC in Sydney.

From design to delivery: an inside look at Australia's first fully integrated digital hospital

St Stephen's Hospital Hervey Bay is Australia's first fully integrated digital hospital and a great example of how digital technology has been incorporated throughout all phases of a project.

Partly funded by $47 million federal government grant, everything in the facility from x-rays to equipment monitoring in theatres will be done electronically.

But the journey to becoming an Australian first in healthcare has not been without its challenges, with the project team having to work out very early how to design and build a hospital which caters for EMR.

In this article, Richard Royle, Executive Director of UnitingCare Health and Bruce Wolfe, Project Director and CEO at Conrad Gargett Riddell Ancher Mortlock Woolley, talk about the team's strategy behind designing and building Australia's first fully integrated digital hospital, exploring the different elements that need to be considered to design and deliver a facility which caters for new technologies.

Notes on the design of hospitals and their clinical organisation

Hospital planning is endogenous: starting out with a conventional image of what a hospital is, the process produces variations on an established theme. The same old same-old.

Nowhere is this more apparent than in the provision of the inpatient beds - which remain the defining component of the piece.

This short paper sets out Andy Black's personal observations based upon four decades of working in the hospital world. It is a radical prospectus for the design of a very different hospital with a different approach to the organisation of clinical practice.

It outlines ACN’s role as the pre-eminent Australian professional nursing body, and its ability to provide a conduit to nursing leadership system-wide and a unified professional nursing voice.
