Drawing on a recently completed report for the NZ Productivity Commission on primary care innovation in New Zealand, this session from Dr Lesley Middleton and Phoebe Dunn will explore how the environment for primary care has developed since the introduction of the Primary Health Care Strategy in 2001, before going on to discuss the current policy settings and enablers and barriers that exist today.
Linking to Helen Parker’s HSRAANZ webinar in September, Lesley and Phoebe will use the recent expansion of the Health Care Home model of care across NZ as an illustrative example of some of the bigger themes at play, and to tell the story of an innovation that has emerged and evolved from the middle of the health system.Find out more »
Commissioning of health services is a relatively new healthcare concept in Australia and there is limited experience to guide commissioners, such as Primary Health Networks (PHNs) on methods which facilitate research evidence-informed procurement and commissioning.1 Reviews to date have identified the challenges of identifying a single preferred commissioning model and that commissioning impacts are highly context-dependent.
This WEBINAR by Professor Jonathan Karnon, Jade Hart and Kenneth Lo will discuss the commissioning approach of PHNs and the challenges of assessing the cost effectiveness of primary health services. Using residential aged care as a case study, we will also present an evidence-informed framework that seeks to recognise the many complex variables, such as intricate funding models, clients with diverse needs, and presence of numerous stakeholders with different roles and interestsFind out more »
