The Australian health system is characterised by unrestricted access to subsidised general practice services and the absence of patient enrolment. This presentation discusses how the Australian health system balances multiple priorities of access, choice of provider, quality and cost of care in the delivery of general practice services. Recent reform attempts will be discussed- including the planned introduction of voluntary patient enrolment, attempts to improve collaboration between GPs and other primary health care providers, and funding models shifting away from fee-for-service to blended payment models.
Dr Michael Wright is a GP and health economist from Sydney, Australia who worked in English general practice between 2010 and 2014. Michael is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Health Economics Research and Evaluation (CHERE) at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), and the Chair of RACGP Reference Expert Committee on Funding and Health System Reform.
