Metrixcare Presenting at Delivering Quality Care Conference 2017

Delivering quality care within our hospitals can be greatly enhanced through the use of new approaches to governance of healthcare systems using measurement of safety, quality indicators, compliance and patient outcomes. 

Metrixcare Clinical Director Dr Chris Farmer will be delivering a presentation titled 'Balancing costs and quality of care in the pursuit of value' at the Delivering Quality of Care in Hospitals conference to be held in Brisbane 22-24 March 2017. 

Dr Farmer says that "As hospital managers we need to re-conceptualise our traditional approaches to quality management that can lock us into thinking about things like "incidents", when in reality we deal with a much broader definition of harm, prevalence and exposure on a daily basis. A key challenge is how do we innovate in the ways we govern our healthcare services for quality and cost improvement for better value?"

Metrixcare Presenting at Healthcare of the Future Conference 2016

New healthcare technologies will dramatically improve the effectiveness and efficiency of hospitals but knowing what is relevant and useful can be a challenge. Metrixcare Clinical Director Dr Chris Farmer will be delivering a presentation titled 'Bringing Predictive & Smart Analytics into the Business of Healthcare' at the Healthcare of the Future conference to be held in Sydney 15-16 June 2016.


Dr Farmer's presentation will share a story about a journey from anxiety to excellence:

  • Current management challenges healthcare providers face
  • Using trust and transparency to drive improvement
  • Visual analytics approaches to understand and predict performance
  • Creating a culture of excellence 


Dr Farmer says that "Analytics is a foundation of learning that can help us predict the future by learning from our past. It is a journey that evolves over time as we unlock greater value from our existing data to see the variation that is essential for improvement. However, solutions are not all technical but rather lie at the socio-technical intersection of people and technologies."

Metrixcare Presenting at NSQHS Conference 2016

A revised set of National Safety and Quality Healthcare Standards are due for full implementation in 2018 and hospitals are currently preparing for the proposed changes and how to get ready for accreditation. Metrixcare Clinical Director Dr Chris Farmer will be delivering a keynote presentation on Interpretive Thinking for Continuous Improvement at the NSQHS Standards conference to be held in Melbourne 18-19 May 2016.

The keynote by Dr Farmer will cover the topics of:

  • governance perspectives on accreditation and improvement
  • principles of management and governance
  • optimal design of processes for performance improvement

Dr Farmer says that "the conference is timely given the continued adoption of the national standards and the anxiety some hospitals are feeling about managing these new requirements. The Metrixcare National Quality Standards Module offers an opportunity for organisations to move away from sporadic and reactive reporting of compliance to continuous quality approaches that encourage excellence."

We have been in the era of "big data" for a long time in healthcare. The next wave of innovation in healthcare is coming through how we get greater use from our data to deliver better care.
