Board Chair Report - Dr Alison Edwards

2017/2018 sees a year of consolidation for Country SA PHN. We are still one year short of having outlasted the Medicare Local but importantly have now been able to move past the introductory phase 
of maintaining “business as usual” we were required to start with in both programs. The passing years have seen the maturing of our needs analysis enabling our approach to programs to evolve over time and across our patch to well reflect needs and issues in our communities.

There is no doubt we are in a challenging era with ongoing uncertainty about who and what will be funded under the NDIS and who and what needs to be supported outside of this structure as it becomes more apparent that there is going to be less of the former and a lot of the latter.
The unsettled political environment with leadership and ministerial changes over the last few years has not created a stable platform and changes at 
the top of the department have also created subtle shifts in focus as to priorities for our collective energies. The Health Care Homes program 
is one such approach with much potential initially but now less wind in its sails from above.
