A challenging landscape in healthcare

Western health systems continue to brace themselves for an explosion in demand for services. Demographic, cultural and economic change, as well as a growing burden of complex and chronic disease, challenge the future sustainability of health systems and demand new and innovative solutions to ensure future health needs and expectations are met.

A team dedicated to meeting the challenge and driving sustainable excellence in healthcare

At EY our dedicated healthcare practice works with healthcare organisations to drive performance, manage risk and sustain improvement. With a team of over 50 health specialists, we work at all levels of the health industry to find new and innovative ways to solve our clients’ most complex issues.

Our team has diverse backgrounds from former secretaries of departments of health, clinicians, provider chief executive officers and executives, health strategy and policy advisers through to service and program managers. We operate as a highly integrated business across all geographical areas and our global integration provides access to an international panel of recognised experts in healthcare, which facilitates innovation, decision-making and speed of execution.

We advise and work collaboratively with a range of organisations across the health industry from federal and state departments of health, new national bodies, peak and professional bodies, health insurers, through to public and private sector service providers. We challenge the status quo and bring fresh perspectives and insight to our clients’ thinking and solutions.

Our five centres of excellence currently include:

  • System architecture and transformation
  • Productivity and performance improvement
  • Clinical and quality improvement
  • Service and capital planning
  • Organisational risk management

Each centre of excellence offers insight and perspectives on specific clients’ issues and areas of focus. Insight and approaches are underpinned by enabling areas of capability including analytics, workforce, finance, IM&T (including eHealth) and program management.
