Relevance to General Practice

Health Care Homes is a model for general practices and ACCHS. A Health Care Home is an existing general practice or ACCHS that further commits to a systematic approach to chronic disease management in primary care. This approach supports accountability for ongoing high quality patient care. It uses an evidence-based, coordinated, multi-disciplinary model of care that aims to improve efficiencies and promote innovation in primary care services.
