Our Strategic Plan 2020-2023 articulates its commitment to continuously improving primary health care practice including a more structured and data driven approach to quality improvement; and sharing insights to support continuous improvement across the primary health care system.
In 2021, we engaged with stakeholders to identify the current processes for contract design and management; data collection and analysis; and reporting.
It was recognised that in the past, performance management processes may have been ad hoc, inconsistent, or administratively burdensome on commissioned service providers.
After consultation with consumers and providers, we developed and launched a new Performance Management Framework (PMF) in 2022 that sets out our approach to measuring, monitoring, managing, and overseeing the performance of commissioned service providers.
We are working with commissioned service providers to implement the PMF with a target for all relevant service providers to be onboarded to the commissioned services reporting portal by July 2023.
The Portal enables our service providers to upload data and gives us the ability to review and analyse this data for greater visibility of how our service providers are performing.
Design workshops held in consultation with service providers, consumer advisory council and committees.
