Early Intervention & Integrated Care

About Early Intervention & Integrated Care

The Department of Health introduced the Service Coordination Model and Better Access to Services Strategy in 2001 with a vision to align practices, processes, protocols and systems through functional integration. Service Coordination places consumers at the centre of service delivery, to ensure they have access and opportunities for early intervention and health promotion and integrated care to improve health outcomes. Service coordination is facilitated by Primary Care Partnerships where agencies come together to agree on how they will coordinate their services so that consumers experience a health system that works together.

The reasons why service coordination is being undertaken, the principles that guide service coordination as well as the way to improve service coordination in Victoria have been described. 'Better Access to Services: A Policy and Operational Framework' is a document that guided the Service Coordination model.
