The Country SA PHN is the primary health network covering the country regions of South Australia.
Established by the Federal Government, PHNs are now operating Australia-wide. The key objectives of the PHNs are to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of medical services for patients, particularly those at risk of poor health outcomes, and to improve the coordination of care to ensure patients receive the right care in the right place at the right time. PHNs will achieve this through;
Population health planning (needs assessments/data analysis) including service gap identification Health care commissioning particularly for vulnerable populations Practice support services so that GPs are better placed to provide care to patients and avoid hospital Supporting general practices with safety and quality Assisting general practices with eHealth Our six key priority areas are:
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Aged Care Digital Health (eHealth) Health Workforce Mental Health Population Health
