Ms Julie Sturgess

    Speaker Biography

    Julie has over 30 years’ experience in the health care sector as a clinician, and senior management executive. Her experience encompasses roles such as chief executive officer of a primary care provider, Director of clinical service design and innovation and Senior Director for strategy and governance in Queensland Government and Principal Health Specialist for Telstra Health.

    These roles required extensive knowledge across both government and non-government organisations, and an understanding of metropolitan, regional and rural health settings. Julie has predominantly focussed on managing the provision of healthcare services and improving access for patients across a range of environments through delivering innovative and sustainable solutions for care which promote optimum safety, quality and efficiency whilst recognising the unique requirements of each community. Julie has a keen interest in the opportunities that eHealth will drive in changing the face of healthcare delivery, and is an avid follower of the potential service offerings that artificial intelligence, modelling and remote technologies will offer in primary care.

    Having worked with Northern Territory Health to establish the National Telehealth Connection service, she has seen the benefits demonstrated through increasing the delivery of health services to remote indigenous communities.

    But technology is only one part of system reform. Julie’s other passion is the exploration of governance and funding models which will promote a greater focus on long term health outcomes through the recognition and increased investment in the social determinants of health.
