Integrated Team Care

NT PHN commissions services to provide Care Coordination and Supplementary Services through the Integrated Team Care (ITC) activity.  

The aims of the ITC Activity are to contribute to:

  • improving health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with chronic health conditions through better access to coordinated and multidisciplinary care 
  • closing the gap in life expectancy by improving access to culturally appropriate mainstream primary care services (including but not limited to general practice, allied health and specialists) for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Care coordinators work in their PHN region across the Indigenous and mainstream primary care sectors to assist Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to obtain primary health care as required, provide care coordination services to eligible people with chronic disease who require coordinated, multidisciplinary care, and improve access for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to receive culturally appropriate mainstream primary care.

To be eligible for care coordination under the ITC Activity, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients must be enrolled for chronic disease management through a general practice or an AMS, have a GP management plan and be referred by their GP.

Dental is not an eligible condition for the purposes of the ITC Activity.
