Tom Weil, in the preceding article, sees the physician executive playing an increasingly significant role in negotiations between payers and service providers, in offering the public acceptable explanations for the inevitable changes in the provision of care, and in developing more cost-effective methods of delivering high-quality health care at affordable prices. Effective involvement of physician executives will be facilitated by their having received professional training somewhat different from that of the traditional MHA. How do these prognostications relate to the health care scene in Australia? Factors that must be taken into account in considering their applicability to Australia include differences in the structure and management of the Australian health care system, the current state of that system, the background of the leadership that makes the key managerial decisions in the Australian system, and emerging trends within the system.
