Early Intervention and Integrated Care occurs when health services work with clients and their carers to provide a coordinated, seamless and integrated approach to deliver responsive and person centered care.
Hume Whittlesea Primary Care Partnership provides capacity building to support agencies to deliver an integrated approach to chronic disease service delivery. It does so by facilitating clinical practice improvement initiatives, strengthening community action and workforce development.
The Department of Health and Human Services produces a range of resources and supporting documents to support agencies implement a systems improvement approach in the early intervention and management of clients who present with chronic and complex care needs.
