The Organisation

COORDINARE is the South Eastern NSW Primary Health Network (PHN), working with a broad range of ‘system’ stakeholders to transform the health system in the region by building synergies, streamlining approaches, and creating momentum for population health improvement.

COORDINARE has adopted an innovative business model that is data-driven, using epidemiological information, practice-based evidence and local knowledge to set clear priorities for improving health outcomes, achieving better patient experiences and reducing costs.

Your key responsibilities will include:

  • Ensuring internal systems and processes are robust and efficient
  • Reviewing funding contracts and advise on issues relating to quality, risk and compliance

  • Quantitative and qualitative evaluation strategies appropriate to monitor performance
  • Contractual documents, as well as systems for managing, monitoring and reporting risk
