Virtual Event: Driving Public Healthcare Procurement Capabilities

Reducing cost and maximising efficiencies while improving quality and safety through good procurement practice

Tuesday, 9 February 2021
11:00 AM - 1:10 PM AEDT

Agenda Overview

Did you know effective procurement can allow public hospitals to lower supply costs by as much as 10% – 20%?

Public healthcare systems continue to face escalating costs, low-value care, and huge disparities in patient outcomes. To help combat this, procurement in the healthcare sector is moving away from price-focused procurement towards a more value-orientated approach. This requires a multidisciplinary approach and a high level of involvement of internal stakeholders that are open to change.

Public Sector Network’s Driving Public Healthcare Procurement Capabilities Virtual Event will equip attendees with new ideas and strategies on how to improve existing procurement process and how to start the shift towards a value-based procurement approach.
