CHF is preparing a submission on the Inquiry into and report on best practice chronic disease prevention and management in primary health care. The inquiry has been referred by the Minister for Health, The Hon Sussan Ley MP, to the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Health. We want to hear your ideas on best practice and innovative models which incentivise access, quality and efficiency in chronic disease prevention and management for consumers.
The scope for the inquiry is broad and covers: examples of best practice in chronic disease prevention and management, opportunities for Primary Health Networks and the Medicare payment system, the role of private health insurers and the role of State and Territory Governments in chronic disease prevention and management. The full terms of reference can be found here (external link).
We will be hosting a teleconference for any and all members interested in discussing this inquiry on Tuesday, 7th July, at 2pm. Please contact CHF Policy Officer Ms Mehak Vohra at [email protected] or call 02 6273 5444 if you’d like to RSVP for the teleconference or provide comments.
