The Building Blocks provides an introduction to the Model of Care, it features a smaller number of core characteristics designed to improve access and outcomes, including a focus on digital health and an extended practice team, as well as focusing on planned and proactive care.
Practices may choose to implement some or all the building blocks, choosing aspects that fit the needs of its community/whānau. The model is not one size fits all, instead it is one that is flexible and adaptive and can be implemented within many diverse practices/PHOs.
By firstly implementing the MoC building blocks into practices, this provides a gateway to the full HCH programme, allowing a gradual transition to the full HCH model. Practices typically incorporate the model over a period of time at a pace that suits their practice and workforce environment.
