Summary
  • CSIRO has undertaken a highly consultative process to develop this report which aims to shape future investments in the health system. This report was informed by the views of over 30 organisations from all sides of health, including government, health insurers, educators, researchers, and professional bodies. Australians rank amongst the healthiest in the world, largely due to the high standard of living, education, and healthcare accessibility. However, the nation's strong average health outcomes hide a few alarming facts. Australians spend on average 11 years in ill health – the highest among OECD countries 63 per cent (over 11 million) of adult Australians are considered overweight or obese there is a 10-year life expectancy gap between the health of non-Indigenous Australians and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples 60 per cent of the adult population have low levels of health literacy. Value will be rewarded over volume, consumers will be empowered and viewed as a valuable health resource, humanity and relationships will be essential elements of care, and technology will be used to decrease costs and increase access to care. Digital technologies could assist many of the necessary changes – complementing the role of health professionals and providing consumers with greater autonomy in their health and wellbeing management. However the sector will also need to consider how to facilitate greater uptake of novel and effective health solutions; how to provide health professionals and organisations with the necessary support required to successfully navigate change; the system changes required to securely unlock value from the growing volume of personal health information being generated; and opportunities for divesting away from obsolete or lower value health solutions.
