Read the latest United General Practice Australia media release
United General Practice Australia (UGPA) has today called on the Federal Government to push back the start date on the Health Care Homes pilot project, to allow sufficient time to get this important opportunity to transform the nation’s healthcare system right.
The group has stated that the implementation of the Health Care Home, including the model, the tiers, and supporting practice tools, has been rushed and risks undermining this vital opportunity to get the model right.
An extended timeline would allow the profession time to ensure the instruments and tools being used are appropriate and validated by evidence. This will allow a comprehensive understanding of the framework and ensure we get the funding mechanisms right in order to support the roll out of the pilot.
UGPA has reiterated that the profession is prepared and ready to work closely with the Federal Government on this important project, and that the risk of missing the opportunity to make over the nation’s healthcare system for the better is too great.
UGPA has proposed an extension of at least three to six months, rather than the current set start date of 1 July.
A properly supported and designed Health Care Homes pilot will address the challenges facing Australia and bolster access to the delivery of high-quality care, ensuring each patient has a stable and ongoing relationship with a general practice that provides comprehensive care to people at all life-stages.
