Calls for an integrated healthcare system for Australia

In an article for the Australian Society for Medical Research (ASMR), the Alliance’s National Director, Dr Bronwyn Morkham, calls for an integrated healthcare system for Australia.

The Living Longer Living Better aged care reforms that focus on keeping older people at home for longer; and the arrival of the NDIS with its focus on improved social and economic participation for its members, means the demand for new and improved community health responses is only going to get greater. Both reforms offer an exciting opportunity for health networks to think differently about delivery of existing services outside hospital walls; and how, in collaboration with other programs, new health responses can be developed to the mutual benefit of all.
