Evaluation of the GP Super Clinics Program 2007-2008

6.2.2 Integrated Care

Page last updated: 2012

All of the GP Super Clinics Directors demonstrated awareness of the importance of ensuring care was integrated across aspects of their service delivery model. They indicated that they had achieved extensive or full implementation of integrated care within their practices. However, most indicated that the integration within the GP Super Clinics was more reliant on corridor conversations and on shared health records, than on more systematic approaches supported by multi-disciplinary clinical guidelines.

Of the patients completing the survey, 66% agreed or strongly agreed that the GP Super Clinic staff coordinated all aspects of their care. These data suggest the majority of patients believe that their care is well-integrated within the GP Super Clinics.
