There has been an exponential increase in the health care services delivered virtually in Australia from 8% in 2020 to over 35% in April 2021. Furthermore, between 13 March 2020 and 16 March 2022, over 100 million telehealth services were delivered to around 17 million Australians across the country. The increased difficulty in gaining access to medical treatment, care and healthcare professionals during the pandemic only reiterated the need for Australia’s healthcare system to adopt virtual healthcare. These services, enabled by digital technology, assisted in relieving overburdened healthcare systems, reducing the spread of the virus, and fostering a new kind of patient-clinician interaction.

Although COVID-19 has prompted the rapid adoption of virtual digital technology, the question arises; how can virtualisation and digitisation continue to increase efficiency, care quality and reduce costs as we learn to live with the global pandemic?

With this in mind, the National Virtual Healthcare Summit 2023 will bring together senior thought leaders from the healthcare space to discuss the emerging trends and challenges and how virtual healthcare is revolutionising the patient and clinician experience thus boosting quality of care in this digital era.

Key Topics

  • Examining how the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of virtually enabled care

  • Assessing the readiness of your organisation, technology and people to implement virtually-enabled model of care

  • Developing technological infrastructure within organisations to support and enable real-time data insights to measure and improve clinical care and patient experience outcomes

  • Assessing data and information security strategies to effectively sustain and deliver improved quality and patient care for the future

  • Establishing governance structures to enable leadership to make decisions that drive towards a future of virtual health offerings
