Multiple challenges are facing the health industry in Australia and globally, including workforce shortages, the rapid pace of technological changes, lack of integration and coordination of care, health disparities, pandemics and natural disasters; there is an unquestionable need to reimagine and transform constrained public health systems into ones that are human-centred, inclusive, and resilient to future shocks.

To do so, there is an urgency to strengthen existing and establish new models of collaboration across professional, institutional, and organisational boundaries, which helps improve healthcare infrastructures. The challenge is enormous, but so is the opportunity.

What are some of the key enablers that forge strong partnerships for the development of Health Precincts? Is Australia’s ecosystem structured to support a thriving health precinct environment?
