The Central Victorian Primary Care Partnership facilitates collaborative work with partners using integrated approaches across the continuum: prevention to complex care.
Integrated care focuses on service delivery and health promotion at an individual level, encompassing systems and organisational change related to service delivery. Integration is a way to improve access, quality and the person’s experience of the service system. This covers the domains of service coordination and integrated chronic disease management.
Integrated Chronic Disease Management
Integrated Health Promotion (IHP) refers to agencies in a catchment working in a collaborative manner using a mix of health promotion interventions and capacity building strategies to address priority health and wellbeing issues.
There are many types of services, and service responses, across the health and human services system. However, there is no common system to support people with multiple needs. The service coordination (SC) framework helps service providers to work together to align common practices, processes and systems, especially initial contact, initial needs identification, referral, assessment, feedback and shared care planning.
