Connecting for collective outcomes – the Brisbane North PHN consortium model. 

Working collaboratively at a regional level can significantly enhance outcomes for individuals, communities and providers.

In 2020, older people were disconnected from their community, social groups, and support services as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In this video you will hear from two community aged care providers who rapidly came together – as a result of their membership in the healthy@home consortium – to enable continuity of care, communication and social connection in an innovative way.

Brisbane North Primary Health Network (PHN) provides backbone support for the healthy@home consortium. In the video, you’ll hear about how the consortium was formed, how it works, and how the arrangement has changed relationships between service providers in the region.

The consortium model provides the structure for Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) service providers and peak organisations to work together, share, and innovate in the Brisbane North and Moreton Bay region. COTA Queensland is a member of the healthy@home consortium.
