Site Spotlight - Coordination of Health Care

Coordination of health care: experiences of information sharing between providers for patients aged 45 and over 2016.

This AIHW report looks at gaps in information sharing between providers, using the 2016 Survey of Health Care.

In 2016, nearly 1 in 4 patients reported inadequate information sharing between the emergency department they visited and their GP or usual place of care. Remote area GPs were less likely to be informed of patients’ last specialist visit compared with major city GPs.

This report includes visualisations where you can see rates of various measures by regions of Australia.
