Health Care Home expands to 50pc of greater Wellington

About 50 per cent of patients in the greater Wellington region are now cared for by practices taking part in the Health Care Home initiative, with plans to reach 80 per cent of the enrolled Capital & Coast District Health Board (CCDHB) population by the end of the year.

In addition to using Medtech's ManageMyHealth portal to book appointments, request repeat prescriptions and message their practice, patients are now being offered extended assistance such as the ability to talk to their GP on the phone, varied appointment lengths and care planning for those with high needs or at risk.
