Commissioning

Ensuring that services meet the health needs of the population

Improved efficiency, effectiveness and coordination

Commissioning is a strategic approach to purchasing that seeks to ensure that services meet the health needs of the population and contribute towards service and system improvement and innovation.

Country SA PHN will utilise commissioning to assist in meeting our objectives of improved efficiency, effectiveness and coordination in primary health care.

Commissioning framework

A commissioning framework has been developed by the Department of Health so that PHNs can ensure that their commissioning approach is consistent with the approach adopted for the program as a whole. This process includes three key phases which are underpinned by a number of tasks and actions:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Procuring Services
  • Monitoring & Evaluation

The Cycle

Ensuring that services meet the health needs of the population

We use our commissioning cycle to help us achieve our aims in accountability, due
process, probity and consistency in the use of funding for primary health services.
Our commissioning cycle encompasses the development of our health service
delivery from the health planning stage, through procurement and contracting
activities, to evaluation of programs and services.
