General 12 December 2018
Since October, we have run multi-partner collaborative workshops across the country that aimed to build consensus on our six research flagships in the areas of Rural & Remote Health, Rehabilitation, Aged Care, and Primary & Acute Care. A big thanks to the invaluable input from our partners, giving us the insights to help develop a vision for changing the way we deliver care in Australia.
The following provides an overview of each of the flagships:
Rural & Remote Flagship: Identification and personalised management of chronic disease
Use different data sets to identify underserved populations who have or are at risk of developing chronic disease. Provide personalised, digitally-supported behaviour change interventions and end-to-end management. Focus on rural and remote partners in WA and NT.
Rehabilitation Flagship: Digitally coordinated rehabilitation management
Use comprehensive data following injury and link with previous history to predict risk and improve outcomes of rehabilitation. Deliver personalised, technology-supported interventions with portals that support communication between care providers and with clients and family.
Aged Care Flagship: Digitally coordinated aged care management
Use residential and clinical data to improve quality, reporting and business efficiency. Support shared care and improved health and wellness through resident and family portals. Provide real-time dashboards to support continuous quality improvement and decision support.
Primary & Acute Flagship 1: Identification and personalised management of chronic disease
Use different data sets to identify populations who have or are at risk of developing chronic disease. Provide personalised, digitally-supported behaviour change interventions. NB close alignment with Rural and Remote Flagship
Primary & Acute Flagship 2: Transparency of data to improve clinical practice and referral
Use health care and administrative data to measure and understand clinical variation and practice; support reflection and personalised professional development; match consumers to appropriate care providers; and drive efficiency through payment and claims optimisation.
Primary & Acute Flagship 3: Intelligent decision support
Use comprehensive data and information across care continuum to identify consumers at risk. Provide intelligence to consumers, clinicians and administrators to predict and prevent poor outcomes and low-value care. Improve quality use of medications. Support resource allocation and business efficiency.
