This event was the third annual NSW Health Symposium. The focus of the 2014 Symposium Caring Now and for the Future: Health System Sustainability was on consolidating gains made over the past three years and discussing new and emerging health system models. The event program brought together health policy experts and clinicians to discuss, debate and share ideas on health system sustainability and how care can continue to be improved into the future. The day highlighted progress on the State funding model, including a demonstration on use of data by clinicians in reducing unwarranted clinical variation.​​
