In the future, hospitals, GPs, allied health professionals, and aged care and disability service providers will need to ‘do more with less’.

AI is already disrupting many industries, with early adopters in healthcare leveraging its power for early detection and diagnosis. However, it can also deliver efficiencies in the medical consumables supply chain, and forecast demand at hospitals.
