NDIS ‘Marketplace’ Leads to Cross Sector Collaboration
Thursday, 6th July 2017 at 1:37 pm

A not for profit and a private NDIS provider have joined forces to provide more holistic solutions for people living with disability in the Northern Sydney region of NSW.

Hit 100, a NDIS provider of health coaching and healthy home-delivered meals and the not for profit Northside Community Forum announced their partnership on Tuesday.

Hit 100 CEO Karn Ghosh said the partnership represented the commitment of the two organisations to a future of better health for people with disability.

“We’re excited to continue to grow our positive impact on the health behaviours of Australians living with disability,” Ghosh said.

“The NDIS, while not without its challenges, presents an incredible opportunity for collaboration and partnership to improve services and outcomes for consumers, and we believe our partnership with Northside is a bold step into the future.”

Northside CEO Danielle Ballantine said the two organisations shared similar values of “innovation, an outcomes-focused approach and the promotion of choice and control for people with disabilities in the emerging NDIS marketplace”.

“Northside recognises that people with a disability are currently navigating a complex system of multiple service providers with very little integration or care for the person’s life outcomes. Our partnership with Hit 100 is an important step in Northside becoming a total care solution for people with a disability and their carers,” Ballantine said.

“Northside and Hit 100 thoroughly explored each other’s service to make sure that the partnership is meaningful and that it also adds value to participants needs.

“We look forward to a positive future with Hit 100 and our new approach for community care for people with disability.”

The two CEOs said fostering partnerships and collaboration were key to ensuring value-for-money and increased efficiency in the NDIS marketplace.
