About HCF

Our vision is to improve health care for all Australians, which is why this year’s HCF Catalyst focus is on improving patient outcomes. Adoption of new technologies and business models that help us better meet our customers' needs is the best way to ensure the wellbeing of our members remains the focus.

HCF Catalyst alumni prove health technology start-ups can drive innovation in the healthcare industry and positive impacts for all. This year, we’re looking for the brightest new minds from a range of backgrounds to develop ideas that can improve the wellbeing of Australians everywhere and disrupt the health care industry.
