Integrated Care in Australia at a Low Level of Maturity

Dr Nick Goodwin hosted an IFIC Australia Workshop on Frameworks for Assessing Integrated Care on March 20, at NSW Parliament House.

The workshop examined the challenges for taking integrated care forward in Australia through the use of various assessment frameworks. Delegates attended from across Australia that included a diverse group of persons ranging from LHDs and PHNs to provider organisations and the university sector.

The NSW Ministry of Health and the ACI were also active participants.

The audience engaged in reflecting on Australia’s ‘maturity’ to take forward integrated care by asking them to reflect on the 12 dimensions of the SCIROCCO maturity model (Scaling Integrated Care in Context), click here for more information.

The results of the deliberations suggest that integrated care in Australia is currently at a low level of maturity required for health and care systems to adopt good practice, but also that delegates were very keen in the future to find ways to re-orient health and care services to better meet current and future demands.
