Overview

With future funding reform in sight and the open and contestable market already driving providers to act competitively, it is crucial that providers take stock of the opportunities for innovation and growth but also that opting out may be the most viable option for your business.

For those aiming to thrive in the new market now is the time to define exactly what you are offering the consumer in the new market and how you can innovate to create a unique and competitive service.

While some organisations will thrive as a key player in the industry others will struggle to break down the barriers to innovation and growth.

The 'Aged Care Business Model Innovation' conference will give you essential insights into where the aged care sector is headed and unpack the future funding and regulatory environment to make critical decisions around strategy and innovation.

  • Deliver competitive services in an era of choice and control
  • Understand and overcome barriers to innovation
