PHNs have been established with the key objectives of increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of medical services for patients, particularly those at risk of poor health outcomes, and improving coordination of care to ensure patients receive the right care in the right place at the right time.
Report to the Community
During the past 12 months, our work has included commissioning new models of care, exploring and developing the concept of Integrated Health Networks, expanding eReferral and evolving PHN Exchange.
Our second three-year strategic plan explains our goals and focus, and how we aim to make a difference to our community through better health, better care and better systems.
We are pleased to publish our fourth regional Murray PHN 2018-2022 Needs Assessment building on the evidence presented in our 2017/2018 Needs Assessment published last year.
A key role of Murray PHN is to identify and analyse health and service needs within our region and prioritise activity to address those needs. By identifying these priorities, we can use funding to commission services that support health service delivery, access, equity and management of health conditions efficiently and effectively across primary health care for patients in our region.
The region’s major health needs and priorities have not changed substantially in the intervening year, but this Needs Assessment lifts our ability to identify priority work that can improve health outcomes across our community.
