Health Care Homes Grant Round closing 15 December 2016

The Department of Health is seeking applications from eligible organisations within ten Primary Health Network regions for a restricted competitive grants program consisting of one off payments of $10,000 (GST exclusive) each. This funding round will identify eligible organisations to participate in Stage 1 of the implementation of Health Care Homes. This payment is intended to incentivise participation and facilitate readiness for a program start date of 1 July 2017.

Under this model, eligible patients with chronic and complex health conditions will voluntarily enrol with a participating medical practice known as their Health Care Home. This practice will provide patients with a ‘home base’ for the ongoing coordination, management, and support of their conditions. Patients will nominate a preferred clinician within the Health Care Home and a tailored care plan will be developed by the clinician in partnership with the patient.

Stage 1 of the model will be implemented across ten Primary Health Network (PHN) regions that were selected to provide a good cross section of metropolitan, regional, rural and remote locations, and to leverage chronic disease programs operating in these regions.
