RACMA calls for policy makers to build Australia’s health system for the future Print E-mail

The Royal Australasian College of Medical Administrators (RACMA) is advocating for Australian policy makers to take steps to build Australia's health system for the future.

RACMA's President, Professor Michael Cleary, said, "The health system is under increasing pressure, and requires a strategic approach that extends beyond the traditional notion of healthcare delivery". "Visionary leadership and effective management and implementation are the keys to a successful future", he said.

RACMA's statement on health system priorities, Building Australia's Health System for the Future, calls for a strategic and unified approach to providing a health system for the future. This needs to be underpinned with the expertise to support the safe, equitable and effective delivery of care.

Professor Cleary said, "As a specialist medical College we expect nothing less than providing a safe, effective and sustainable health system for Australians". "RACMA's Fellows and Associate Fellows use their medical and clinical knowledge, skill and judgement together with their leadership and management expertise to positively impact the health and safety of the public, and the efficiency and effectiveness of the health system as a whole. This expertise will be critical to providing the health system for the future", he said.

As RACMA approaches its 50th Anniversary as the specialist medical college for medical leaders and managers, both RACMA and the College's Fellows and Associate Fellows are enthusiastic to work with Australia’s policy makers to build Australia’s health system for the future.
