2018/19 Annual Report Card now available!
2018/19 has been a standout year for COORDINARE and we are delighted to release our fourth annual Report Card, which showcases our key achievements and highlights some of the work we have undertaken.
Our Report Card can be viewed or downloaded here:
Our PHN continues to evolve and mature; we have won awards, had staff selected to be part of state-wide commissions and expert panels, and presented at state and national conferences. Most importantly, we have continued to work with health professionals and consumers to design effective services that address identified needs of the people in our region.
We are working within local communities to commission more than $19.5 million in services for people who are at risk of poor health outcomes, and partnering with other agencies to reach people who are at risk but not accessing the health care they need. We have concentrated our efforts on ensuring that our commissioned services deliver improved health outcomes, better consumer experiences, enhanced provider satisfaction and increased value for money across our six health priority areas: Aboriginal health, chronic conditions, prevention initiatives, mental health and suicide prevention, drug and alcohol, and end of life care.
We have successfully improved consumer representation across all aspects of our work, creating opportunities for participation both at a system and a service level, and provided mechanisms for people to tell their stories and be listened to.
We also recognise that every GP and general practice in South Eastern NSW is a critical stakeholder for our organisation. This year, we provided a number of unique opportunities to the 203 general practices across our region to apply for funding to improve their capacity, and offer heightened quality care by promoting a team-based care approach.
We hope that you enjoy reading the highlights of our achievements presented in this report. These achievements would not be possible without the support and leadership of the Board, and the commitment of our team working closely with a diverse range of stakeholders. We thank them for their ongoing commitment to working towards our vision of building a coordinated regional health system.
