Aims to prevent avoidable hospital presentations and admissions by working with those clients at risk of, or already experiencing frequent emergency presentations or hospital admissions.
Targets people with chronic disease, aged and/or complex needs and psychosocial needs that frequently use hospitals or are at imminent risk of hospitalisation and could benefit from coordinated care. Works in collaboration with other acute, community, aged care and specialist services to provide alternative interventions to hospital admission where appropriate.
A HARP client is a person with chronic disease and/ or complex needs including psychosocial and palliative, who is at risk of presenting to hospital frequently. Clients who have a primary diagnosis of acute mental health are an exclusion to the program and should be referred to mental health services.
