What is the Rising Risk Project?

In Melbourne’s north east region, it is estimated that around 15-35 per cent of the population has chronic and complex needs or are at rising risk of developing complex needs . 

The rising risk project led by EMPHN is focusing on the population in the Banyule and Nillumbik local government areas, who are at rising risk of preventable hospital admissions and increased health service utilisation. There is real value and benefit in proactively identifying the rising risk cohort within primary health, understand them and ultimately put in place an intervention that keeps the rising risk population healthier for longer.
