Transcript of "Amanda Hagan - Australian Unity - Innovation in private health insurance"

  1. 1. July 2014 Amanda Hagan CEO Australian Unity Healthcare Health Insurance Summit
  2. 2. Taking time to think
  3. 3. PHI & primary care “(Private Health Insurers) have been excluded from the primary care space for historical reasons and if insurers are prepared to work collaboratively with doctors and patients then we should welcome that development.’’ “Sharing information about the patient with all the usual safeguards has the potential to free up capacity for non-insured patients – not detract from it.” “If an insurer can provide additional support to the doctor around interventions to say a pre-diabetic patient, why would we resist that? It has the potential to save a lot in human and financial terms.” Federal Health Minister Peter Dutton to the Australian Private Hospitals Association 33rd National Congress, March 24, 2014.
  4. 4. Flattening the cost curve
