This presentation will provide viewers with current opportunities for AEPs within primary health care in Australia and an understanding of the National eHealth record, including how to register as a Health Provider to access and contribute to an individual’s eHealth record. It will review the National Health Reform in Australia, the current Australian Government, State and Local Government responsibilities for Health, how primary care is funded in Australia. It will explore current opportunities in primary care for AEPs, including through Medicare Locals, private work, general practice, Local Health Networks, the recent introduction of the NDIS, recent changes to the Aged Care sector, and the Mental Health sector.
