Introducing Health Services Daily

3 minute read

We’re launching a new newsletter to cover health policy, reform, industry and innovation – register for a free trial now.

This Thursday The Medical Republic will launch a new daily newsletter – Health Services Daily – covering news across the entire health services sector, with a particular focus on policy, reform, industry, digital health and innovation.

TMR readers can get a free trial followed by a discounted subscription if you register with your AHPRA number in the next two months.  

Why a national daily for health services now?

We think there hasn’t been such an important moment for the future of our healthcare system since the foundation of Medicare.

Though still world class, our system is broken into silos that don’t communicate. Yet in each silo each day, there is inspiring innovation happening that other parts of the system would benefit from knowing about.

Health Services Daily aims to build information bridges that connect all of these silos.  

The system is also straining against the pressure of chronic health issues. The system needs to change to meet the rapidly changing demands of our patient population, but change in such a complex and established system will be very hard.

Health Services Daily will keep readers informed about issues that are relevant to their daily work, presenting news and views that underpin our need to move forward on system reform and industry wide innovation. 

It will aim to get readers on the front foot with issues such as interoperability, high-level innovation and grassroots work.

We want to bring you these stories, from the simple ideas that solved a complicated problem or the opportunities to have a say in policy decisions.

Health Services Daily will deliver to  subscriber inboxes key stories each day from across the national health system, including breaking news, guest editorials, in-depth reads and analyses, and stories that we hope will inspire its readers.

To give readers a sense of our coverage, our key category tags for coverage include: hospitals and hospital networks, primary care, states and territories, commonwealth, community care, agencies, medical colleges and boards, allied care, private health insurance and payments, aged care, specialists, digital health, tenders and contracts, pharma/biotech, business and devices. 

The Health Services Daily team will also scan all of the key sources of new information each day and provide readers with links to at least a dozen other key happenings on the day. This will include tenders, contracts, political announcements, corporate appointments, digital health news, major media stories and of course those more localised happenings that might be useful to other regions.

Health Services Daily will be a subscription product, but initially it will be free for two months to any TMR readers who register to receive it. 

GPs who read TMR will also be able to subscribe to Health Services Daily for an ongoing discount of 50%. If you subscribe before the end of the trial period (24 July), you will receive a further discount of 20% off the already discounted price.  

Health Services Daily subscribers will be able to access all Wild Health summits and The Medical Republic events at a permanent 20% discount.

REGISTER HERE to receive your free two-month trial of Health Services Daily.

Register with your GP AHPRA number and you will be sent a link to apply the extra 50% discount on a subscription before the trial period ends.
