  • Funding: $506,895.92 Digital Health CRC

High quality Primary Health Care (PHC) is key to containing spiralling health costs and providing equitable community-based care in Australia. Currently Australia does not have an agreement on what constitutes high quality PHC to guide our funding models. In partnership with WentWest (Western Sydney Primary Health Network), QUEST PHC will work with Primary Health Networks, consumers and key stakeholders from Aboriginal Community Controlled Health and Prison Health sectors to develop Australia’s first evidence-based and professionally endorsed tool for measuring high quality PHC.
