Patient-Centred Healthcare Homes in Australia: Towards Successful Implementation report

August 2016

Health and consumer leaders have released a blueprint for 21st Century Medicare aimed at giving patients greater say in a team-based health care system. 

The report resulting from an expert Roundtable earlier this month recommends stepping up Federal Government Health Care Home plans in order to drive a fundamental shift in Australia’s health services toward patient-focused, community based health care “hubs” coordinating care.

The Roundtable was hosted by the Consumers Health Forum of Australia, the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), The George Institute for Global Health and the Menzies Centre for Health Policy.
