Under the GRACE model hospital staff work in collaboration with general practitioners and aged care facilities to avoid hospital admissions and reduce access block and length of stay for older patients at HKHS hospital.

Data indicates that GRACE is having positive effects and enhancing the journey of aged care facility residents. It is also helping to improve communication and trust between the hospital, general practitioners and aged care facilities.
