New Models of Care (ACT Health)
ACT Health funded a targeted literature review on new models of care and their implications for capital planning.
This review assessed the available evidence regarding current/emerging models of care, changes in workforce, and technological innovation in terms of their implications on the future level of demand for ACT Government funded health services. The major purpose of this macro analysis was to assess, where possible, the plausibility of key ACT Health planning assumptions in view of the identified trends in the health care environment and the likely impact on future service delivery. This review allowed us to leverage off the excellent work of many CHSD team members put into reports from: SAFTE, Veterans’ Home Care, Community Health Review, NSW Clinical Redesign and the Gold Coast Hospital Avoidance Program.
