Team Care Arrangements (TCA) (Item 723) involves general practitioner collaboration with other participating providers on required treatment or services, documentation of the arrangements, and organisation of a review date for patients requiring Chronic Disease Management (CDM). More info and eligibility requirements can be found on HealthPathways here.
When submitting Team Care Arrangements (TCA) (Item 723) to Eastern Health and few other health services via HealthLink SmartForms, there is an option for this item that can be selected under the ‘Referral Continuation’. It is not required to select a relevant condition from the Reason for referral drop down box, where applicable. This is because the patient has been reviewed by the specialist and at most, their condition may no longer fit one of the referral criteria. Instead Other can be selected.
