Commissioning background

Australia's 31 PHNs work under a commissioning model, which seeks to drive improvements in efficiency and effectiveness of primary health care services. Through commissioning, priorities and decisions in funding are informed by regional planning and regional input; investing for population health outcomes, improved service coordination, system integration and value for money.

Population health-based commissioning shifts the focus from purchasing services and funding them on the basis of usage, to the design of models of patient care that deliver improved health outcomes with a mix of interventions from a range of providers.
