Taking stock - report looks at the state of innovation in the Primary Care sector

What are the enablers and barriers to innovation in our Primary Care sector? The New Zealand Productivity Commission has released a new report prepared by the Faculty of Health's Health Services Research Centre.

The report takes stock of how the environment for primary care has developed since the introduction of the Primary Health Care Strategy in 2001. It looks at the system-level developments with respect to primary care innovation in New Zealand, what enablers and barriers exist, and the current take-up of the Health Care Home as a new model of service delivery.
