Collaborative Commissioning was established to transform the way healthcare is delivered and funded in New South Wales through a one-system approach.

This approach delivers structural and behavioural changes at the local and system level.

​​Guiding principles of Collaborative Commissioning

There are six principles that guide Collaborative Commissioning and PCCGs:
  1. Joint responsibility between providers and organisations.
  2. Strong consumer engagement, embedding accountability to the community served.
  3. Local design of care pathways for improved outcomes for patients.
  4. Funding reform, including flexible purchasing and provider arrangements, realignment of resources and outcome-based payments.
  5. Use of data analytics, business analytics, implementation support, and digital technologies supported by Lumos.
  6. Encouraging continuous learning to support improvement and innovation.
