  8. 8. Key drivers for change In the current climate of state and national health reform, NSW is leveraging key strategies to drive change for HITH  Local Health District Service Agreement measures  NSW 2021 Goal 11 – Keeping people healthy and out of hospital  National Emergency Access Target (NEAT)  Activity Based Funding (ABF) Equivalent or better care, at better value
  9. 9. Whole of system approach General Practice Quick Triage ED Streaming Emergency Models and Units Out of Hospital Care Hospital in the Home · Planned Admission Inpatient Wards Daily or intermittent · Home or ambulatory ComPacks · Non-clinical services to support early discharge Community Nursing Primary & Community Care 3 Door Options Inpatient Short Stay Units Chronic Care eg. Medical Assessment Units, Urgent Care Centres rd Aged Health Palliative Care Hospital Substitution (Hospital in the Home) General Practice
  10. 10. Hospital in the Home Program Objectives • NSW HITH services have consistent, measurable and clearly defined service delivery models • NSW Local Health Districts and Specialty Health Networks have a clearly defined strategy to increase their HITH capacity to meet the needs of specific target patient groups and their broader community
  11. 11. Hospital in the Home Program Strategies • NSW HITH Guideline • Revenue opportunities • HITH Costing study
  12. 12. Program status  Clinician led Working Group commenced June 2011  Work plan for 2012/13 developed  Guideline in draft May 2013  High level implementation plan drafted May 2013
  13. 13. NSW Hospital in the Home Guideline What we want to achieve • To provide clear, standardised guidance regarding definitions, key elements and principles • Consistency of reporting, defined data measurable data-to enable coding counting & costing & enable ABF • Improved HITH service planning • Local development of service delivery models to meet local needs • Reduce variation, to achieve best practice across the state • Incremental increase in % acute separations admitted to HITH
  14. 14. NSW Hospital in the Home Definition Hospital in the Home (HITH) services provide acute and post-acute care to children and adults residing outside hospital, as a substitution or prevention of in-hospital care. The place of residence may be permanent or temporary. • A person may receive their care at home (including Residential Aged Care Facilities), in a community setting, at school or in the workplace. • HITH care is short-term and preferably interdisciplinary
  15. 15. NSW Hospital in the Home Definition Daily HITH • • • An individual requiring at least daily clinical care and assessment of their treatment needs - clinically equivalent to an admitted patient Daily HITH substitutes for inpatient care Meets the national definition Intermittent HITH • • An individual with predominantly post-acute care needs who requires less than daily clinical assessment of their treatment needs Intermittent HITH is clinically equivalent to non-admitted care.
