Enhanced real-time decision support for General Practice

In September 2023, Country to Coast, QLD introduced Primary Sense, a cutting-edge tool designed to support general practice to enhance the quality of patient care in our region.

More than 130 Practices have registered so far, if you're yet to sign up we invite your practice to fill out the Primary Sense registration form and start your Primary Sense journey.

CCQ is working diligently to improve healthcare for both general practices and their patients. Primary Sense is a population health management and clinical decision support tool that provides real-time clinical decision support for general practitioners at the point of care.

It leverages the world-renowned Johns Hopkins University ACG® System to identify at-risk patients, making it a leading population health analytics software. Primary Sense also supports data reporting to meet general practice PIP QI compliance requirements.

Key Features:

  • Real-time clinical decision support tool for general practitioners
  • Identification of at-risk patients
  • Near real-time extraction, analysis, and secure management of de-identified practice data
  • Confidential and secure data handling
  • Assistance with patient risk assessment, reporting, and care planning.

We are honoured to have heard from clinical champions, including Professor Kim Greaves, Specialist Cardiologist at Sunshine Coast University Hospital, and General Practitioner Dr. Lisa Beecham. They have played a crucial role in designing this practitioner-driven tool, which is set to advance quality improvement outcomes in primary healthcare.
