Australia has a relatively advanced and equitable health and ageing system, but if we do not plan strategically for the future and innovate, starting now, we risk in the not-too-distant future having an outdated, unsustainable system, that is unfit for purpose and unable to meet the needs of the population.
Australia needs a model focussed on wellbeing (rather than illness), that has a more integrated, preventive and outcomes-focussed approach.
Practical action is required to enable real and transformational change. This report identifies a possible approach that aims to transform the system, improve integration and implement a facility to fund and support partnerships and collaborations.
