AHHA submission - Tasmanian Department of Health consultation - Our Healthcare Future

AHHA provided the following submission to the Tasmanian Government Department of Health on the Consultation Paper Our Healthcare Future.

To achieve a healthy Australia supported by the best possible healthcare system, AHHA recommends Australia reorientate the healthcare system over the next 10 years by enabling outcomes-focused and value-based healthcare. As described in AHHA’s blueprint for health reform, Healthy people, healthy systems, this requires:

  1. A nationally unified and regionally controlled health system that puts patients at the centre;
  2. Performance information and reporting that is fit for purpose;
  3. A health workforce that exists to serve and meet population health needs; and
  4. Funding that is sustainable and appropriate to support a high-quality health system.

AHHA provides the following feedback to the consultation paper within this context.
