New Primary Health Care Web Product

Posted by Sharyn Rognrust, Category: Data & Evaluation, Planning & Evaluation,

This new web product provides an overview of the primary health care system and the delivery of health care services in Australia. As part of this new product, a web page dedicated to Primary Health Network (PHN) data has been developed that consolidates published Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) data disaggregated at the PHN level. It is envisaged this data may assist PHNs with their performance monitoring and population health planning.

In addition, this web product includes the release of a new product known as 'Mortality Over Regions and Time' (MORT) Books. These books present national mortality data at the PHN level and also by selected geographical areas, including remoteness area, socioeconomic group and Statistical Area Level 3 (SA3). The analysis includes the leading causes of death and trends over time.
