Enrolments are high for Health Care Homes trial

Brisbane North PHN has successfully enrolled 15 practices to participate in the Health Care Homes trial.

Health Care Homes patient enrolments closed on 30 June 2019, with a total of 10,343 patients enrolled nationally—and 1,203 patients enrolled regionally—who will be engaged in Health Care Homes until the trial ends in June 2021.

Brisbane North PHN would like to acknowledge the dedicated practices who worked with their practice development officers to achieve these outstanding results.

Caboolture Indigenous and Community Medical worked to increase their enrolments over eight months, eventually achieving more than 400 patient enrolments.

Beachmere Medical Centre took the initiative to create an expression of interest poster, which successfully gained the interest of patients in the waiting room.

Practices participating in the trial are now focusing on new and innovative models of care, utilising the health care homes neighbourhood and in particular engaging with their local pharmacists to implement the community pharmacy aspects of the trial.
