Program strategy and governance

The PRMs strategic framework

NSW Health has developed a strategic framework to help align existing PRM initiatives and platforms.  The framework outlines the guiding principles within which PRMs operate:

  1. Patient-centred – PRMs and associated processes are patient-centric and give patients a greater say in their care
  2. Iterative co-design approach – PRMs are designed with input from patients, carers, clinicians, and decision makers
  3. Integrated – PRMs cover the whole patient journey across all care settings and are integrated to allow a holistic view
  4. Fit for purpose and meaningful – PRMs need to be valued and useful for diverse groups of patients, carers, clinicians, and decision makers
  5. Trusted and reputable – the tools are evidence-based, culturally appropriate and easily understood
  6. Consistency – the information collected and systems used allow for comparisons across dimensions of care (core functionality, symptoms and quality of life) and allow flexibility for tailoring to local needs
  7. Universal coverage – PRMs are universal, but have adequate variation to distinguish between cohorts
  8. Sustainability – ensure that PRMs support a sustainable health system that delivers effective and efficient care into the future
  9. Transparency –  data are available in real time and accessible at multiple levels of the system
  10. Staged implementation approach – supports the incremental adoption of PRMs and ensures adequate change management and resourcing.
