Southern and WellSouth to roll out Health Care Homes, boost telehealth

New Zealand's Southern District Health Board and WellSouth primary health network have launched a new primary and community care strategy that focuses on increasing the use of technology such as telehealth and electronic health records and the implementation of the Health Care Home model of care.

The strategy also calls for an increase in the number of specialist services that are usually provided in either Southland or Dunedin hospitals to being delivered at the community level, starting out as visiting specialist appointments that will over time be routinely accessed in community settings.
