Future of Health

The Future of Health report provides a vision and plan for how Australia can shift focus away from illness treatment and towards the holistic management of health and wellbeing.

Key enabling themes include empower consumers, addressing inequity, unlocking the value of digitised data, supporting integrated healthcare solutions and integrating with the health global sector. 

We're working towards a new approach for healthcare in Australia.
