Integrated care

Wellbeing SA is working to develop, enhance and expand community based models of integrated care to improve health and wellbeing outcomes and health care experiences for all South Australians.

Wellbeing SA recognises the importance of integrated care in its vision for a rebalanced health and wellbeing system in South Australia.

Our work focuses on bringing health care closer to home, supporting people and their health team in the management of chronic conditions and providing safe and appropriate alternatives to a range of traditional hospital services.

We achieve this by working in collaboration with community members, clinicians and other community organisations to ensure our actions are responsive to community needs and complement existing health services and systems.

Integrated Care Strategy

Our work in integrated care is underpinned by the Wellbeing SA Integrated Care Strategy, which provides a roadmap for Wellbeing SA and its partners across the healthcare system and community, to work together, unlocking the opportunities to improve integration of care.

The Integrated Care Strategy focuses on three priority areas to improve health care experiences and outcomes for all South Australians through better coordination, connection and collaboration in primary, secondary and tertiary health sectors:

  • putting people at the centre of their care
  • delivering connected care
  • working together as a system.

People with lived experience of chronic conditions, their families, and loved ones, health professionals and those within community sector organisations have contributed to the development of the strategy and informed the priority areas for actions.
