Provide a higher rebate for patients of a family doctor
1 - Decreased doctor-shopping.
2 - Decreased duplication of investigations by different GPs on the same patient.
3 - Better utilisation of Medicare/investigations as GPs will know their patients better.
4 - Less defensive medicine, for the same reason.
5 - Improved health outcomes with continuation of care, as agreed on by every medical body and research such as APCC on diabetes.
6 - More centralised medical notes.
