Integrating care

We are committed to supporting and promoting the implementation of models of care that keep patients well, and where possible, in their community. Our goal is to work in partnership with Hospital and Health Services (HHSs), Primary Health Networks (PHNs), other government departments and the community, to share examples of good practice, inspire providers to work differently, and explore new ideas for overcoming barriers to integrated care.

An integrated and well-coordinated care pathway for patients is essential to achieve excellent health outcomes and reduce waste in the health care system. This ensures the needs of consumers are placed at the centre, resulting in improved patient satisfaction and better health outcomes.
