The Transitional Care Program is a government initiative to provide the elderly with additional time to recover with the aim of them eventually returning home or entering residential care. Hospitals place patients in transitional care as a means of releasing acute care beds. Normally these transitional care beds are located in aged care facilities close to the hospital or within a wing of the hospital itself.
The design platform provides hospitals and patients alike with the flexibility that comes with immediate patient discharge, as follows:
Given that research has proven how patients located in a residential care bed close to the family and friend network, recover more quickly and achieve generally better overall results, wSw developed its TCP Global program to suit.
+ Better outcomes for patients and their families
+ wSw manages the case until the optimal outcome is reached
+ Cost saving for government, hospitals, agencies and other treating and referral organisations
+ The ability to discharge people from acute beds quickly
+ Knowing that wSw has TCP Global beds available 24/7
