Primary and Preventive Health

Productivity reform case study

Background

At its 11 October 2019 meeting, the Council on Federal Financial Relations agreed that the Productivity Commission would prepare case studies on productivity reform within Australia to encourage knowledge sharing.

The purpose of these case studies is to inform and to diffuse knowledge and practices across governments, and identify reform opportunities. They are not intended to be an accountability mechanism or a benchmarking exercise that judges the performance of jurisdictions.

This is the second case study conducted by the Commission. It examines innovative primary and preventive health initiatives that aim to improve outcomes and reduce the risk of hospitalisation for people living with chronic conditions.

Objectives of the study

Many innovative initiatives rely on a mix of strategies, integrating primary care and other parts of the healthcare system and actively engaging people living with chronic conditions. This case study seeks to identify the key enablers of successful primary and preventive health initiatives that aim to improve outcomes for people living with chronic conditions.

Expected release date
