Dr Richard Ashby, Chief Executive of Metro South Hospital & Health Service in Brisbane, highlighted the transformation of Princess Alexandra Hospital at a recent Health Roundtable meeting.  Dr Ashby participated in the first Health Roundtable twenty years ago, and has been involved with the organisation ever since.  He said that since 1995 member hospitals have reinvested hundreds of millions of dollars in improved efficiency by implementing ideas gained at Health Roundtable meetings.  Thousands of senior health managers, clinicians and executives have participated in workshops and developed improvement action plans over the 20 year history of the organisation.

Dr Ashby explained how Princess Alexandra have used HRT data and innovation sharing to reduce their relative stay index 35%, improve their day-of-surgery admission rate by 25%, and to transform their finances from deficit to consistent surplus over the last ten years.
