Critical services


CEDA will explore the complex network and future of health services in Australia in 2019.

How do we deliver critical services with better outcomes?

Australia’s health system is a complex network made up of services, providers and patients, alongside research, technology developments such as e-Health, a widespread workforce, financing and funding as well as Medicare and governance. 

This system provides support to millions of Australians who each require unique and individualised care dependent on age, gender, medical history, culture and socioeconomic background.

CEDA drives discussion on Australia’s health system examining efficient service delivery, innovative and cost-effective funding models and meeting today’s requirements while planning for the future.
