Redesign of the practice incentive program

The Australian government’s current consultative process has the potential to catapult Australia’s health system to be the world’s best practice.

The key decision is whether the health minister is bold enough to include in the new Quality improvement incentive patient reported outcome measurement.

These new tools  are the catalyst that will change all of the health care as predicted by Professor Michael Porter of Harvard  Business School.

Patient reported outcome measures  if included will be the first occasion that we will be measuring health rather than healthcare.

Ideally the four types of patient reported outcome measures will be included that is functional measures, cared for measures (PREMS), preventive measures and longevity measures

Should this occur and the government utilises an app such as the eHealthier ePROM app the annual savings set out in my earlier blog of  of $2 billion will eventuate within three years
