About Us

The Network provides opportunities for Australasia's Lean Thinking and redesign healthcare community to learn, share and network.

We acknowledge the value of learning from industries outside of health and actively seek opportunities to collaborate with the manufacturing and service industry community.

To date the primary activity of the network is the annual Australasian Redesigning Healthcare Summit, Australasia's premier Redesign event for healthcare.

This event is renowned for assembling a diverse group of global experts and making them accessible to our delegates through varied learning experiences.
