9:10 AM Alternatives to Hospital: How to Redesign Hospitals and Services with Non-Acute Integrated Care to Achieve Better Health Outcomes and Sustainable Change

Northern NSW Local Health District is working closely with primary health networks to develop a range of programs that shift the focus from activity and outputs to continuity of care and people’s needs. Recognised by both Federal and State as one of Australia’s most effective partnerships based on outcomes, learn how to:

  • Redesign hospitals and services to incorporate ambulatory or outpatient services with more consideration of linkages between community based services, primary healthcare and the hospital 
  • Identify key drivers for alternatives to hospital, including demand management and preventing acute presentations and readmissions
  • Achieve sustainable change by refocusing services on the patient and their needs, partnering with primary health and community care and building the right culture with the ‘right’ people
