Co-designing a blueprint for the evolving health service
Changing Health Systems (CHESS) identifies the challenges in the health system and co-designs person-centered, integrated and holistic models of care, encouraging the use of primary care as the home point of coordination. CHESS supports the evolution of the health care system by evaluating service delivery models that aim to improve client care and inform best practice.
