HealthPathways South Australia
HealthPathways South Australia (SA) is being implemented through a partnership between SA Health, Adelaide Primary Health Network and Country SA Primary Health Network.
HealthPathways is a resource of information and guidelines for General Practitioners (GPs) and health professionals to support the consistent management of patients in the community, and lists where community services are located. The pathway also provides information for GPs when referring their patients to SA Health for specialist care.
HealthPathways are developed by a clinical team including GPs, hospital specialists, nurses, allied health staff and paramedics. The team works together to ensure the information in the guidelines supports GPs to work with their patients to best plan their care. This means the patient receives ongoing care in the community within their local support network.
Patients following the pathways will receive most of their care in their community, meaning they are less likely to need to go to hospital.
HealthPathways South Australia will be available to South Australian GPs and health professionals in early 2018.
A launch event was held on 17 July 2017 to promote the HealthPathways SA program and included guest speakers from New Zealand and Western Australia who showcased their implementation of HealthPathways.
