How we connect care
All PHNs have a goal of improving the coordination of care so people receive the right care in the right place at the right time.
Elderly people and people with chronic health conditions and disabilities often need a range of services provided by a number of health professionals in a wide variety of locations. These different services, providers and locations can often lead to a fragmented care experience, which negatively impacts on people’s health outcomes and satisfaction with services.
Primary Health Tasmania supports our health system to deliver more connected care by developing resources for service providers and commissioning care coordination services. We also encourage and facilitate collaboration across the system.
