Australian Healthcare Week (AHW) is the largest healthcare event in Australia and is the Annual meeting place for the healthcare community to connect, network and explore the future of the design, delivery and operation of Australia’s healthcare system.
Our vision is to provide a platform for all healthcare professionals to explore the strategies and solutions needed to improve healthcare provision in Australia now and in the years to come.
Made up of 3 conferences, 6 free to attend on-floor programs and an expo hall of 250+ exhibitors; AHW has been designed for all areas of the healthcare industry. Our attendees include state health departments, local hospital networks and public hospitals, private hospitals, community health services, primary health networks and primary healthcare providers, aged care providers, universities, architects, consulting engineers, healthcare start-ups and solutions providers.
Since its inception in 2011, Australian Healthcare Week has firmly established itself as the one stop shop for healthcare professionals. Maintaining its prominence as the home of healthcare in Australia, it has grown beyond simply being an annual event and has fostered an engaged online community of healthcare professionals.
About AHW 2019
On average, a large hospital in Australia has a 30-35 year lifespan. This means that those responsible for healthcare facilities are not challenged with designing hospitals for today, but instead, for the year 2050.
With that in mind, to help maximise the impact of the $130 Billion allocated to healthcare over the next 5 years, the central theme for the 9th Annual Australian Healthcare Week 2019 is future-proofing our facilities and workforce to serve more complex patients in a dynamic digital environment.
