What is Future Health Today about?
Future Health Today is a software platform designed by primary care for primary care. It streamlines the identification and management of chronic disease so that doctors and nurses can support patients to live healthier, longer lives.
The tool provides guideline concordant care recommendations relating to the identification and management of chronic diseases including chronic kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes and will be expanded in the future to include additional chronic conditions.
A robust program of work underpins the tool and consists of quality improvement opportunities, consumer resources, general practice and consumer advisory groups and significant research capability and experience.
Future Health Today is a collaborative project between The University of Melbourne and Western Health. A multidisciplinary team oversees the development, implementation and evaluation of the project.
What are the anticipated outcomes of the FHT trial?
The Future Health Today cluster randomised control trial will provide evidence for the effectiveness of the Future Health Today quality improvement program on providing guideline concordant care.
