The Australian Medicare Local Alliance (AML Alliance) is a new company formed by AGPN as the national organisation for Australia's Medicare Locals. The conference will continue and build on the successful AGPN National Forum which has encouraged and showcased the best in primary health care development and delivery.
Australia's 2012 premier primary health care conference will be hosted in a new era for health. From July this year, a network of Australian primary health care organisations will be in place. Regional organisations led and governed by local clinicians and community leaders, Medicare Locals will integrate the delivery of primary health care, improve coordination, address service gaps and improve the ease with which patients can access health care.
The National Primary Health Care conference was a three day event held at the Adelaide Convention Centre in Adelaide, South Australia. The theme of the conference was 'Healthy communities, healthy nation - from transition to action: integrating primary health and social care'.
The aim of the conference was to showcase the best in primary health care delivery and to give delegates opportunities for engaging, learning and networking. Around 900 delegates attended over the three days of the event.
The conference was based on the development of Medicare Locals with their emphasis on local communities, and included sessions on topics such as: after hours; eHealth; population health; and prevention.
Kathy Ride from the HealthInfoNet conducted an internet café on the first and second day of the formal conference program.
