Introduction

Healthcare is undergoing fundamental change and facing profound challenges as it continues to deal with the impact of Covid-19, which has exacerbated the workforce crisis, access to treatment and health inequalities.

Sláintecare, our high-level 10 year policy roadmap to deliver whole system reform and universal healthcare, is supposed to be halfway through its implementation, but, with the pandemic and the loss of key personnel involved in its delivery, reforms have been delayed. So, where are we? Now it’s time to take stock – will it be implemented as originally envisaged 6 years ago or will we end up with “Sláintecare lite”? What will patients’, staff and communities’ experience of our reformed healthcare system look like?

The Business Post’s 19th annual Health Summit, taking place live and in-person for the first time in 3 years, will bring together leaders from across the health service to explore the impact of current reforms on service delivery and share experiences of the reality of working on the ground in this complex and challenging system.

Attracting a wide-ranging audience this event enables delegates to share best practice and explore the wider opportunities and issues facing the healthcare system, and how these affect staff, patients, and communities.

Our event will feature plenary sessions and dedicated conference tracks where we’ll be addressing some Big Question topics:

  • Taking stock and leading change: Where are we now on the Sláintecare roadmap, the reality of what healthcare looks like and the key challenges going forward
  • Why patient time is the most valuable currency in healthcare
  • Unleashing the power of regional and local leadership 
  • What changes are needed to integrate services at the frontline?
  • Strategic health authorities and regions: Lessons from history
  • Healthcare delivery in a world transformed by crisis: What will the new reality look like?
  • The rising cost of living and a fall in living standards: What does it mean for the healthcare system?
  • What has Covid revealed about innovation in the HSE?
  • Supporting primary care and building on what works
  • Culture, training and development: The changes needed to improve retention in the HSE
  • Healthcare and climate change: Moving from policy to action
  • Innovation on the frontline: A showcase of evidence-based innovations and best practices
  • Leaders and decision-makers in healthcare management and delivery
  • Clinicians and clinical leaders
  • Policy-makers
  • Service and solutions providers to the health sector
