Crisis, what Crisis? Healthcare Funding in the Future

Lecture Theatre B, Level 7
Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre

305 Grattan Street

The current Commonwealth–state hospital funding agreement expires on 1 July 2020. It is a big deal, as it accounts for about 40 per cent of total public hospital funding. What should post-2020 hospital funding look like? Should there be rewards for safer care? Should there be a (funding) link between primary care and hospitals? If so, what/how?

Professor Stephen Duckett is Director of the Health Program at Grattan Institute. He has a reputation for creativity, evidence-based innovation and reform in areas ranging from the introduction of activity-based funding for hospitals, to new systems of accountability for the safety of hospital care.
