Our purpose is to provide Best Care for every person, every time.
Central Highlands Rural Health Best Care Quality Framework helps us to ensure a positive patient experience by:
Defining our purpose in terms of what is important to those we care for and their families.
Best Care is care and service that is Personal, Safe, Connected and Right.
Personal: sees the consumer as a respected partner and treats them with empathy and compassion ~ CHRH OUTCOME: We provide care and services focused on consumers’ needs and preferences.
Safe: causes no physical or psychological harm ~ CHRH OUTCOME: We provide physically and emotionally safe care.
Connected: makes sure everyone is on the same page about the care, gives consistent messages about what’s going on, ensures people are connected to the services they need ~ CHRH OUTCOME: We facilitate a smooth, integrated care experience that meets consumers’ needs
Right: care and services (including non-clinical services) are based on the best available evidence and implemented to get the best possible outcome ~ CHRH OUTCOME: We provide the right care in the right way for the best possible results
