The Global Innovations Group is a new collaborative group of Health Roundtable member organisations who are keen to identify international best practice in key areas.  Through our membership in the University Healthsystem Consortium, a group of over 200 centres across the US, Canada, UK, and Europe, we will benchmark with specific exemplars across the globe, bringing experts to Australasia to share their practices.

Participants from the USA include Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, and University of Utah.  From England, the University of Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust will participate with selected other NHS Trusts.  From Canada we will have Ottawa and selected facilities who are members of CIHI.  We will also be looking to identify other centres of excellence in Asia and Europe.

Membership in the Global Innovation Group is by annual subscription.  The fee for Health Roundtable member organisations is $9000 per year (plus GST).

There is no delegate fee to attend the inaugural meeting of the group.

Note:  There will be an "International Data Collaborative" working group meeting on 20 March at the Sebel Surry Hills Hotel to prepare for the main meeting on 21 March.  Data representatives of each participating organisation are welcome to attend the working group meeting, which starts at 11am on 20 March.
