The Acute Post-Acute Care (APAC) has officially rebranded to the Hospital in the Home (HITH) service.
HITH provides acute admitted care to hospital patients in the comfort of their home, or other suitable location. HITH has been proven to provide equivalent or better health outcomes for patients as they are at a reduced risk of adverse events from hospital admissions.
The service has been in operation since 2000 and provided care to over 60,000 patients since then.
HITH Manager Jairo Herrera said the rebrand will assist patients and the broader community in understanding the functions of the service.
As part of the rebrand, HITH also launched a new referral intake line which will facilitate a smooth referral and admission process to the service.
