Ahead of the Digital Health Summit and Queensland Healthcare Week we chat to Cameron Ballantine, Acting Chief Information Officer at Metro South Health (MSH) about the process behind the rollout of Australia’s first fully digitised health service, and explore the comprehensive change management strategies that made this transition possible.
Ahead of the Health Facilities Design and Development Summit, running as part of Queensland Healthcare Week 2018 we take a look at three of Queensland’s newest and most innovative hospital developments; Herston Quarter, Moura Hospital and Caboolture Hospital. These facilities, through new construction methods, master planning, innovative financing structures and collaboration are heralding the next generation of healthcare in Queensland.
With so many projects under development, including the $1.1 billion Herston Quarter in Brisbane, the $230 Million Gold Coast Private Hospital, and the $253 Million Caboolture Hospital redevelopment, the need to effectively manage project teams, budgets, stakeholders and timeframes, is of the utmost importance.
So what lessons can Queensland healthcare leaders learn from similar hospital redevelopment projects that have already been completed around the country? To answer this question we explore lessons learned and best practice project delivery strategies from some of Australia’s largest and most publicised hospital development projects.
