Transformation is coming. Whether the different health systems of the world are hurtling towards or crawling at glacial speeds towards the adoption of value based healthcare, this change is coming and is inevitable. In spite of countless health care reform efforts in Australia and around the world, unwarranted variation, frequent errors, and unsustainable costs continue to persist. Our status quo is untenable. To solve our healthcare crisis, we must begin to reorient health care around value for patients, we must nurture and equip our clinical leaders with new and specific skills to lead this transformation and we must begin to move away from the zero-sum competition nature that our health system is structured around. Having just returned from value based healthcare discussions in San Fransisco, California and Scottsdale, Arizona, in this presentation Dr Chandrasiri will discuss reflections in this movement from the United States, and explore Michael Porter’s teachings of generating positive-sum competition to achieve value based healthcare in Australia. This presentation will further explore the key leadership personas and leadership styles essential in the monumental shift from volume to value based healthcare in Australia. This session will be relevant for all healthcare stakeholders -providers, funders, employers, clinicians and administrators, in looking at how we can adapt and embrace the monumental transformation towards value based healthcare that is facing our industry today.
