Conference Theme

Healthcare Accountability: Partnering for Success

Conference Objectives

Coordinate the industry in developing a roadmap for a healthcare system for the next generation to meet growing demand for high-quality healthcare

Programme Summary

The theme for the 2015 BHF Annual Conference was Healthcare Accountability: Partnering for Success. The conference sort to highlight the role of policy makers, patients, service providers, funders and the public sector. The aim was to come up with practical strategies that will challenge the industry to take accountability and change the current status quo, by collectively designing a path that can aid our transformation and evolution. This path will be a “best-effort”, under the current conditions of uncertainty, which will be captured in the form of a roadmap that plots our route to where we want to be two, five and 10 years from now.
