COORDINARE, as the South Eastern NSW PHN, aims to facilitate a collaborative, integrated and responsive health care system through effective communication, commitment and partnerships. Below we have produced a series of documents and case studies, showcasing some of the successful projects which foster innovation and collaboration within our region.
We are delighted to release our fourth annual Report Card which showcases our key achievements and highlights some of the work we have undertaken.
2018/19 has been a standout year for COORDINARE and seen our PHN continue to evolve and mature. 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.
The peer workforce is reshaping the way mental health services and supports are delivered. Peer workers are people who have experienced mental health issues first-hand and are able to use this experience to help others.
COORDINARE is taking an innovative approach to building our region’s peer workforce in transforming mental health services and support systems towards a recovery orientation.
The Southern NSW Integrated Care Strategy outlines the commitment of COORDINARE and Southern NSW Local Health District to work collaboratively to integrate healthcare for residents living in Southern NSW.
Integrated care is a collaborative approach to strengthen person-centred health care delivery through the provision of coordinated, high quality care across the lifespan.
We have been working with local health providers to ensure greater service and system integration between primary and acute care.
To ensure patients and consumers experience care which is seamless, timely and appropriate in our region, we have built a strategic alliance with the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District, and developed the Board approved Illawarra Shoalhaven Integrated Care Strategy.
We worked collaboratively with the Illawarra Shoalhaven and Southern NSW Local Health Districts to develop a Board approved Regional Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Plan.
The plan has nine priority areas against which key actions are identified that involve working together across the health system, with consumers and other stakeholders, to provide better integrated care for people with mental illness.
Pharmacists in General Practice is an initiative in which a non-dispensing pharmacist is included in the healthcare team of a general practice, with the aim of providing medication-related clinical and education services to patients.
This was one of 13 initiatives supported by COORDINARE, as part of a project designed to build the capacity and capability of our region’s general practices to move towards a PCMH model of care.
We are delighted to release our third annual Report Card which showcases our key achievements and highlights some of the work we have undertaken.
2017/18 has seen our PHN continue to evolve and mature, consolidating our relationships across the region and building on collaborative efforts with our partners.
COORDINARE has an important role to play in facilitating and co-designing programs within primary care that aim to reduce the burden of chronic conditions in our region.
The Shared Medical Appointments initiative represents a new model of care for the prevention and management of chronic conditions in general practice.
COORDINARE supported the expansion of My Health Record across South Eastern NSW by raising awareness and understanding of this important initiative.
We increased awareness of My Health Record within local communities through a program developed in partnership with six local Councils incuding Wollongong, Kiama, Eurobodalla, Yass Valley, Queanbeyan-Palerang, and Snowy Monaro.
