Accenture & VHA innovation workshop

Posted 05 May 2016

Eighty five per cent of Australians are actually happy with the healthcare they receive, according to latest research from Digital Advisory Partner Accenture.

Accenture’s Ian Manovel said the research, conducted in Australia earlier this year and previewed at a VHA workshop today, showed that a surprisingly high number of respondents were satisfied with their care, but conceded that change is still needed.

“Self-education is the most effective way to improve health, according to the data,” he said.

This Healthcare Innovation/Transformation Survey 2016 research – which will be released later this year – said health system providers must be consumer-centric in their approach to patient engagement, spurring innovation and transformation of best practice.

VHA and Accenture are working together to optimise the health enterprise on behalf of our members.
