Balancing innovation, security and compliance in the health sector

Health sectors around the world grapple with many of the same trends: rising healthcare costs, ageing populations, low digital maturity. Australia is no exception, despite consistently high global rankings in health system performance.

Read the full paper to examine the three-pronged set of challenges – innovation pressures, security risks, and tighter regulation – with a focus on how they impact different areas of Australia’s healthcare and life sciences ecosystems.
