Seminar Room 515, Level 5, 207 Bouverie Street, Carlton
Dr Diane Watson, Chief Executive Officer, Victorian Agency for Health Information, Melbourne
It is well known that Victoria has one of the most efficient health systems, but a recent review of safety and quality found that the state has failed to provide adequate oversight and support for improvements. The Government’s response sets the stage for significant reform of Victoria’s health system. Dr Watson will provide an overview of the establishment of Safer Care Victoria and the Victorian Agency for Health Information and share early views regarding their collaboration with the health and academic sectors.
