Early results show Health Care Homes can reduce ED admissions

A study of the Health Care Home model being rolled out by the Tū Ora Compass Health primary health organisation in Wellington has shown a small but significant reduction in emergency department admissions from general practices that have implemented the model.

New Zealand's Health Care Home model involves the use of technologies such as patient portals and GP telephone triage and is a whole of practice model, unlike the trial currently being undertaken in Australia that specifically targets patients with one or more chronic diseases.
