Chief Implementation Advisor, HealthPathways Community
Master of Ceremonies, 2018 HealthPathways Conference
Andy has held a number of senior managerial positions across the health sector, from primary to secondary/tertiary care and within the non-government sector. His experience has given him a clear understanding of the challenges and opportunities faced by the system as a whole, but also as they apply to its component parts. It is these experiences that have driven a passion for finding practical methods to facilitate positive relationships and systems that can make a positive difference to patients, the community and the providers of services.
In his role as General Manager, Integration & Health Reform at Townsville Medicare Local (Australia) Andy established the business case for and oversaw the implementation of HealthPathways Townsville in partnership with the Townsville Hospital and Health Service. This work related closely to the clinical redesign processes occurring within the HHS, utilising Andy’s experience of leading such projects as he did previously as Chief Operating Officer for the Fraser Coast Health Service.
Andy has also spent time in Canterbury getting to understand the many threads of their change programme. He can clearly and simply communicate all aspects of what the Canterbury Health System is doing, how they tie together, their likely impact, and which bits make sense to tackle first in other health jurisdictions. Andy now operates his own health consultancy, Froggatt Lane, focused on assisting systems and services to develop the environment where the appropriate relationships, processes and culture are created across providers to best position regions to achieve their goals of integrated care at the Whole of System level.
Andy is currently engaged by the Canterbury Health System to facilitate and project manage relationships with interested parties in the United Kingdom who are wanting to adopt the learnings from the successes of the Canterbury Health System and its Whole of System approach.
