Improving the outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients through partnerships

Improving the outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients through partnerships teaser
360 Health + Community (360) are pleased to announce they have entered a partnership with the team at Moorditj Koort – a local community-run Aboriginal health and wellness centre – to deliver the Integrated Team Care (ITC) service in Perth north-east and south-west. 
 
ITC is a service that assists Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients to access culturally appropriate primary health care, while providing care coordination services for clients with chronic disease.

After securing the funding, 360 made the decision to partner as they believed it would provide the best possible outcome for ITC clients.

“At 360 we believe in partnership and collaboration. We believe that’s the only way to make the health and social systems truly about the patient and not about any one organisation.” Paul Hersey, 360 CEO said. 

“When WAPHA made the recent ITC funding available, we sat down with the team at Moorditj Koort and determined that we would deliver a much better outcome to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients if Moorditj Koort delivered the frontline services, with 360 offering support, rather than delivering everything.”

The new partnership, effective immediately, will see 360 provide administration, staffing and other back-end support, allowing the team at Moorditj Koort to focus on providing the best possible outcome for clients.

360 will also support the Moorditj Koort team to deliver the best client outcomes by creating easily accessible pathways into their suite of primary health and social care services for clients.

“This partnership is history making. It’s enabled Moorditj Koort to be the first Aboriginal provider of Integrated Team Care in the Perth metro area. That means we can have Aboriginal people delivering services to Aboriginal people in a clinically and culturally safe environment.” Moorditj Koort CEO, Johnathon Ford said.
