Brisbane South PHN Patient Centred Collaborative Care (PCCC) program has released an Open Market Tender to establish a Provider Panel of contractors and consultants with the requisite mix of skills and expertise to support Brisbane South PHN in enhancing the capacity and capability of the Brisbane South Primary Health Sector to meet the challenges of our existing environment, and any future policy changes or national rollout of the Health Care Home initiative.

Concentrating initially on General Practice as the leader and cornerstone of an individual’s health care team, the provider panel will be used to support the enhancement of General Practice aligned to Bodenheimer’s 10 Building Blocks of High Performing Primary Care and customised to the priorities and needs of the specific General Practice and/or Aboriginal Medical Service (AMS).  Built on the principles of: patient centred, comprehensive, coordinated, accessible care, with a relentless focus on patient safety and quality the aim of PCCC is to improve clinician / staff satisfaction, improve patient experience, improve population and patient outcomes and improve cost efficiency and sustainability of services and the system.

A diversity of skills and expertise within the panel is required to ensure that providers can individually and/or collectively respond to the varying needs of Brisbane South PHN in the roll out of the PCCC program.
