Pinnacle puts runs on the board with Health Care Home model

General practices in New Zealand's Pinnacle Midlands Health Network that have adopted the Health Care Home model are seeing significantly lower rates of avoidable admissions and emergency department presentations than non-HCH clinics, new figures show.

An update to a 2017 report by Ernst & Young (EY) into the HCH model has shown that in addition to previously documented benefits to patient experience, clinician satisfaction and delivery of care, there are measurable effects on ambulatory sensitive hospitalisations (ASH) and ED presentations, particularly pronounced among older people and Māori.
