KEY SESSION SPONSOR
HCF Research Foundation
The HCF Research Foundation, now in its 16th year, was established in 2000 as The HCF Health and Medical Research Foundation to fund health and medical research for the benefit of all Australians. In 2008, its focus shifted to health services research, an area of research that does not receive large funding dollars from other sources. In 2013, the name was simplified to the HCF Research Foundation.
The HCF Research Foundation was originally established with a donation from The Hospitals Contribution Fund of Australia Limited (HCF). While HCF has continued to donate money, the HCF Research Foundation operates independently and with specific focus on funding health services research that can benefit all 24 million Australians.
CONFERENCE APP SPONSOR
Capital Markets Cooperative Research Centre (CMCRC)
The Health Market Quality (HMQ) R&D program of the Capital Markets Cooperative Research Centre (CMCRC) represents a collaboration between private and public health organisations that span 60% of Australia’s $160+bn p.a. health spend and 10 leading Australian universities.
The program is geared to deliver a wide range of analytics-driven solutions for funders, health services providers and consumers as well as robust and challenging research to positively reform Australia’s inefficient Health Market, and a new generation of (at least 50) PhD health data scientists.
The HMQ program builds on the track record of Lorica Health, a CMCRC group company.

A family supplement (i.e. $60,000 for partner and two children up to age 18) is also provided to cover airfare, living allowance, and health insurance.
Bureau of Health Information
The Bureau of Health Information (BHI) is a board-governed organisation that publishes independent reports and data about the performance of the NSW public healthcare system. BHI was established in 2009 to provide system-wide support through transparent reporting. We publish a range of reports and tools so government, the community and healthcare professionals can see how well the healthcare system is functioning, and where there are opportunities to improve.
BHI also manages the NSW Patient Survey Program, gathering information from thousands of patients each month about their experiences in public hospitals and healthcare facilities. All of BHI’s reports and patient surveys, as well as interactive data, are available at bhi.nsw.gov.au.
