According to OECD Health Data 2011, the proportion of GDP devoted to health care has increased in most OECD countries. Further research predicts outlays on health and aged care in Australia will increase from 9.3 per cent of GDP in 2003 to 12.4 per cent of GDP by 2033 (Goss J 2008 Projection of Australian health care expenditure by disease, 2003 to 2033).

The Australian health system manages a significant asset base that is gradually ageing. In addition, changing technologies and the management of human capital all adds to the cost of providing health services.

Are Australian governments of today 'health motivated' to make plans and investments into existing and future infrastructure to service the population needs of tomorrow?

CEDA welcomes the Hon Jillian Skinner MP, Minister for Health and Minister for Medical Research, to discuss reforms to secure a fit future for NSW.

The Minister's presentation will address:
• The necessary health infrastructure that is required to ensure a good provision of services throughout the State;
• Funding partnerships with Federal government and the private sector to support the redevelopment of existing and ageing assets;
• Skills management - training and providing for the 95,000 health system employees;
• Effective integration of new technologies to support diagnosis; and
• Prevention better than cure - the role of e-health.
