The mission explored innovation in healthcare, and the role of digital and innovative technology in delivering better and more affordable patient care at home, within community settings and in hospitals. The program also examined future directions for medicine and patient healthcare.



Our trade mission was wonderful. We were inspired by the ‘chutzpah’ of our Israeli healthcare colleagues to solve problems and get things gone. We also learned so much about how to create a culture of innovation and the value it can have to both patient care and economically. The trip led to several strategic partnerships and personal friendships. I can’t wait to go back!

I was fortunate enough to join the Healthcare and Innovation Trade Delegation to Israel in September 2019. Thank you AICC for putting together an excellent trip. The calibre of delegates on the Australian side was first class, and networks created during the trip have endured since. The agenda on the ground was excellent, highlighting the technological and commercial innovation in Israel, which challenged our assumptions and inspired several innovative projects upon return. Thank you Michelle, Cara and the rest of the AICC team.
