10:10 AM PANEL DISCUSSION: The Role of Senior Leaders in Preparing for the Next Wave of CDC Reform

Aged care has become increasing consumer-centric with Stage 2 of the CDC reform being extended to June 2020. The next wave of reform intends to integrate the Home Care Packages Programme and the Commonwealth Home Support Programme into a single care at home programme to further simplify the way that services are delivered and funded. Are we ready for what’s next?

  • Leaders’ role in leading a culture for change in this highly competitive and changing environment
  • Implementing efficiencies through procurement – Driving productivity, cost and energy efficiencies through regular review of your pricing structure and contracts
  • Leading a change in perception to erode the stigma on working in a nursing home environment and attract and retain the younger generation

12:20 PM Regular Assessment of New Business Models for Success and Relevance as Part of your Business Planning Strategy

It is critical that before an organisation enters to a financial commitment for refurbishment or new construction work of thousands if not millions of dollars the organisation has a full and total understanding the success of its current business model. These changes are driven by the consumer and Government regulations which mean that any older business model will not meet the new demands and be destined to fail. In this session, Bruce will discuss the key considerations when investing for new development and the importance of regular assessment for success and relevance to changing consumer needs.
