Integrated Services Framework for Specialist Health Care for Older People and Service system model for the NSW Connecting Care program
NSW Department of Health - December 2011
This project involved preparing documentation in support of standardising the approach taken to implementing a state-wide NSW health program. The Connecting Care Program is designed to improve the care of people with chronic conditions who are at high or very high risk of hospitalisation. It works with a range of providers to co-ordinate the care that is delivered to these people in the community. The aim is that people with chronic disease are less reliant on the acute hospital system. The Program provides support directly to people with chronic disease via coaching and other support services.
