Service and Business Development Support
We offer a range of consultancy support to non-Pinnacle practices and PHOs, sharing our learning and experience. Examples of our work in this area are Strategic planning with practice owners to establish a five-year service and business plan Supporting practice owners to review their ownership model within the context of future practice needs, recruitment and retention and practice business or service plans.
For example, we have worked with practice owners to help them make the transition from an owner self-employed income model to a partnership salaried model that supports better teamwork, workload and reward parity.
Practice nursing service reviews identifying opportunities for increasing nursing capacity and revenue stream, improving utilisation rates and overall service efficiency.
Health Care Home Collaborative
The New Zealand Health Care Home Collaborative was established early 2016 by the four large networks as founding partners; Pinnacle Midlands Health Network, Procare, Compass Health and Pegasus Health. Northland DHB has also signed up as associated members. The Collaborative Board is represented by the networks the Ministry of Health and the NZRoyal College of GPs.
Membership of the Collaborative provides support, advice and access with regard to establishing the Health Care Home model and will also undertake the formal accreditation of practices against the Health Care Home Model of Care Requirements.
Setting the standard of a Health Care Home
The Health Care Home Collaborative published the Model of Care Requirements in July 2017. These set out the additional components of care expected of a Health Care Home practice over and above that of a more traditional model of care and form the basis of the developmental journey of a practice transforming its care to the Health Care Home model.
Health Care Home Open Days
We hold regular Open Days for practices, DHBs, PHOs and other interested parties to come and hear about our journey, progress and learning to date.
