CLOSED: Request for Proposal – Evaluation and Data Linkage Methodology for the Chronic Heart Failure Pilot Project
About this Opportunity:
WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA) has a requirement for an evaluation of the Chronic Heart Failure Pilot Project. As part of this, WAPHA is seeking a provider to develop and implement an evaluation of the project, design and implement a methodology for data linkage across the primary care and hospital systems in WA.
WAPHA, as part of the Federal Government’s Community Health & Hospitals Program, is undertaking a Chronic Heart Failure Pilot Project. This activity will support general practice in leading and coordinating the provision of multidisciplinary care, with appropriate support, consistent with the National Strategic Framework for Chronic Conditions, and the National Heart Foundation of Australia’s evidence-based principles and recommendations for best practice for CHF management.
The project will pilot a general practice-led, patient-centered multidisciplinary model of care in the City of Armadale and the Midwest region, that focuses on:
- Building capacity in general practice,
- Using quality improvement cycles to optimise general practice processes,
- Empowering and educating CHF patients and their carers,
- Developing the role of practice nurses in CHF management,
- Collaborating with pharmacists,
- Strengthening collaboration between primary and tertiary care.
This requirement consists of:
- Phase 1: Methodology design
a. Design an evaluation methodology and evaluation implementation plan for WAPHA’s CHF Pilot Project, aligned to the objectives and reporting requirements; and
b. Develop a methodology and implementation plan for a data linkage program using CHF as a proof of concept, utilising various data sets, technology and tools held by WAPHA, WA Health Department, other relevant organisations which may include but not limited to General Practice Data, WA Health’s Emergency Department Data Collection and Hospital Morbidity Data Collection.
- Phase 2: Implementation
a. Conduct the evaluation for WAPHA’s CHF Pilot Project, aligned to the objectives and reporting requirements; and
b. Undertake the approved data linkage and (i) provide a technical brief that can be used to replicate the methodology and (ii) if viable, use the derived dataset to report on additional analyses undertaken in accordance with the primary goals of the evaluation.
