A brochure and transcript from Reform's health conference on 'A lot more for a lot less'. Making healthcare affordable, accessible and sustainable will require a transformation of how health services operate. Modern technology and medicine means that services can move closer to the patient, but more efficient and innovative medical services continue to be frozen in old, high cost hospitals. “Disruptive innovation” will break up traditional healthcare organisations such as the hospital and the GP practice and change business models to capture the potential of more innovative services. This transformation of healthcare services can only be achieved by allowing new providers to enter the market, putting pressure on existing providers, and reforming healthcare so it is more responsive to patient choice.
