With the hopes of celebrating the development of digital healthcare services, International Quality and Productivity Center (IQPC) is hosting a two-day conference at Brisbane Showgrounds to discuss the improvement and scope of healthcare technology and innovation. On 28th and 29th June 2022, as part of the 3rd Queensland Healthcare Week, the Queensland health conference will aim to merge inter-disciplinary health services and discuss standardised developments in the healthcare sector regarding innovation, design, and health.

Queensland’s healthcare system is constantly evolving and improving and walking towards a future where healthcare is accessible, affordable, sustainable, balanced, and focuses on the patients’ well-being and care. With this in mind, the conference will find new skills, strategies, and techniques to strengthen healthcare management.

What Will You Learn at the Conference?

Spanning across two days, the conference will focus on agendas such as the problems in the healthcare system and strive towards coming up with productive solutions. Eminent speakers, professionals, and leaders of the healthcare sector will conduct four conferences and have over 16 hours of open discussion about the health ecosystem. With 500 attendees under one roof, you will meet new people working towards the same goal as you, but perhaps, with a slightly different approach. This conference is the perfect way to build your network wherein you can share your vision and open your mind to new and different ideas.

The conference will aim at discussing five main topics through interactive, informative and enjoyable seminars and sessions on both days:

  • Health Facilities Design and Development Summit: This summit will focus on new models, infrastructures, and funding for the healthcare sector.
  • Digital Healthcare Summit: The focus of this summit will be on bringing accessibility and cyber hygiene to the patients.
  • Aged Care Summit: This summit will discuss housing and patient-focused technology regarding aged care.
  • Patient Experience, Safety and Quality Summit: Making healthcare more engaging and empowering for the patients will be the topic of discussion at this summit.
