The Canning extracts data on patients registered for the Integrated Care Collaborative. For this to succeed practices will need to be alter these patients' demographic or custom fields so that it contains the term "ICC".
The HowTo for BP and MD outlines the procedure.
The Agency for Clinical Innovation has conducted a review on Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) and Patient Reported Experience Measures (PREMs) for the NSW Health Integrated Care Strategy.
The literature has shown that patients who are active participants in their health care have better experiences and choose less costly treatments. Having a shared understanding between the physician and the patient enables better decision making.
The report notes the challenge in eliciting informed responses from vulnerable groups and the difficulty of validating the numerous existing tools.
The latest version of the Canning Data Extraction tool is now available and required for practices taking part in the Integrated Care Collaborative.
ICC data is abstracted and uploaded by checking the Custom Reports - Integrated Care Collaborative checkbox.
In addition practices will need to submit the completeness of their ICC data by manually submittting an Excel spreadsheet that measures teh currenncy of the GP Management Plan, Advanced Care Directive and PCEHR Shared Health Summary upload.
The Patient Participation Form has been updated. The new form has been simplified and makes registration of new patients more streamlined. The patient information leaflet outlines the aims of the project. Also available are Northern NSW Local Health District Privacy Leaflet and Consumer Rights and Responsibilities.
Practices are reporting that most patients are keen to be involved as they recognise that integration of care between hospitals and GP surgeries could be improved.
