Deloitte’s CFO Healthcare Survey has captured the views of 44 finance leaders across Australia to understand their priorities and responses across financial sustainability, talent, capital deployment, health equity and ESG.
The COVID-19 global pandemic triggered one of the most significant global disruptions in recent history with the health system at the forefront of this disruption.
The disruption and legacy impacts of the health system’s responses to COVID-19 remain despite the Australian sector already transitioning towards a post-COVID situation. Many health finance leaders are assessing ways to address the removal of COVID-19 funding required to maintain operational performance and financial sustainability in a post-COVID environment.
This combined with key macro-environment factors such as rising inflation, supply chain disruptions, workforce shortages and burnout are creating significant challenges in Australia’s health system.
