These resources relate to the provision of seamless, effective and efficient care, that responds to all of a person's health needs across physical and mental health, with connected service provision across different healthcare providers and greater emphasis on community-based services.
The Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI) has been commissioned to lead the implementation of two streams of the NSW Integrated Care Strategy - Risk Stratification and Patient Reported Outcomes/Experience Measures.
The development and implementation of Patient Reported Measures (PRMs) was identified as a system enabler in the NSW Health Integrated Care Strategy to support Local Health Districts/Speciality Health networks. The ACI is responsible for managing this component of the strategy.
Risk stratification approaches support a focus on organising care to meet the needs of targeted patients and their carers, rather than organising services around provider structures. Early identification and selection of people at risk of poorer patient health outcomes will enable the provision of appropriate integrated care interventions and mitigation strategies.
