SA Health is seeking your ideas to help shape our health system.

What are we looking for?

We recognise the need to create new ways of collaborating and working together with you.

We appreciate that great ideas come from a range of sources, from different perspectives, and in varied ways. We highly value the input that pharmaceutical industry can provide to innovations around how we deliver care to achieve optimal health outcomes for our patients.

Through the Healthy Ideas Portal, we are seeking ideas, innovations and novel solutions for efficient access to pharmaceuticals, supply chain networks and technologies that can achieve a mutually beneficial way of working and also reducing our environmental impacts.

What are we hoping to achieve?

To lead, innovate and inspire through creation of a relationship that values the public’s heath, our impact on the environment and generates transparent benefits to the local economy.

To provide you with a forum, where you are able to share your initiative and ideas.
