A new release from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) features data tables presents statistics from the Coordination of Health Care Study for Primary Health Networks (PHNs) across Australia.
The Coordination of Health Care Study was developed by the AIHW and Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) to fill a national data gap and provide information on patients’ experiences of coordination of care across Australia.
The study included the 2016 Survey of Health Care, which sampled people aged 45 and over who saw a GP between November 2014 to November 2015. The survey was designed to provide robust estimates from each of the 31 PHN areas in Australia. The statistics in these tables show how patients’ experiences of coordination and continuity of care vary across Australia.
