Tender opportunity: Rising Risk Care Coordination

Tender opportunity: Rising Risk Care Coordination

14 May, 2019

Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (EMPHN) invites tender responses from care coordination providers to participate in a new project.

Rising Risk Care Coordination sees care coordinators work with general practices to develop and implement chronic disease care coordination interventions for identified patients who are at risk of hospitalisation.

This care coordination support will include self-management coaching and link patients to a wide range of services according to their individual needs, such as social services.

Care coordinators will:

  • Provide care coordination services to rising risk patients identified by participating general practices
  • Collaborate with participating general practices to identify key issues with processes and develop workflows and solutions
  • Promote benefits of care coordination to GPs and practice staff, including enhancing system navigation for practice and patients
  • Attend Community of Practice workshops with participating GPs, practice managers and nurses to share learnings
  • Provide data, feedback and insights

Commencing in July 2019, this one-year initiative aims to lead health system reform through creating a Community of Practice to develop rising risk identification and care coordination, facilitated by a series of workshops.
