Early in 2016 Department of Family and Community Services, ADHC and South Eastern Sydney Local Health District collaborated with a number of NGO organisations in the disability sector to incorporate a hospital folder system. This system is called, “Admission 2 Discharge together” (A2D) which facilitates a smoother transition of a participant into a hospital system either an emergency admission or through the hospitalisation for a treatment.
The Windgap Foundation was a prominent partner of the A2D folder collaboration system and the Residential Services has been working towards the completion of the hospital folder project. The project is now complete and the system has been fully implemented across the residential sites.
The A2D hospital folder contains the top 5 pieces of critical information regarding a participant and a hospital support plan detailing the participant’s medical and health information and their support needs that are required during the participant’s hospital stay.
The A2D folder also enables a hospital staff to provide support to participant to have a better experience in hospital so that their admission 2 discharge goes smoothly.
