Innovation in Australian hospitals

Judith Dwyer and Sandra G Leggat

Australian Health Review 25(5) 19 - 31
Published: 2002

Abstract

This paper examines the challenge of innovation,and reports on innovation in the Australian hospital sector. Through review of both published and 'grey' literature,the analysis of the innovative record of Australian hospitals is focused on two key questions: How has the hospital sector made use of opportunities for renewal and improved effectiveness in its ongoing response to the challenges it faces? And are the conditions for effective innovation in place? To be truly innovative,the Australian hospital sector requires greater supporting mechanisms including:a consistent policy and funding framework,greater ability to harness the power of information,and development of innovation skills.The government has an important role to play in stimulating the creative capacities of hospitals and their staff.
