ECONOMIC ANALYSIS

10:20 am

Are we measuring the full economic benefits of health infrastructure to ensure the right choices for future care?
Budgetary pressure and increased public scrutiny of investment decisions is increasing the need for governments to have a robust evidence base they can fall back on to justify project selection decisions. This session will look at economic analysis in health infrastructure and will focus on:

  • Are we providing decision makers sufficient evidence to make the right decision between expanding the same or delivering something different?
  • How do we demonstrate the full benefits delivered to the community and Government from once-in-a-lifetime investments in Health?
  • How does health compare and compete on investment priority with other sectors? How can analysis support prioritising investment in health infrastructure over other projects that deliver less benefits?
  • How do we measure and capture the value of emerging health trends (precincts, community care, and the convergence of health, education and transport)

12:00 pm

I am currently part of an international consortium to develop standardized prefabricated modular operating theatres for low and middle income countries – high tech, high quality, at low cost. It is a strategy to address the global surgical infrastructure crisis that leaves 5 billion people without access to safe surgery when they need it, but it also has potential to transform the way services are delivered and funded. This is a healthcare application of modern prefabricated volumetric construction approaches that are popular in Asia, of which Singapore’s HDB apartments and the Changi Crowne Plaza Hotel extension are examples. This session will also touch on ANU’s adjacent modern teaching and research facility for the Canberra Hospital SPIRE.
