Health Care Homes take off in Wellington

The Wellington region is likely to have 22 general practices offering the Health Care Home model by April next year, in effect covering half the region's population.

The NZ model allows patients to request prescriptions, make appointments and message their doctor online, and to access their clinical information through a patient portal. They can also access telehealth services for urgent appointment requests and the practices offer extended hours.
