Collaborative Care Solutions: Team Care Arrangements at Hawthorn East Medical Clinic (HEMAC)

A Team Care Arrangement (TCA) is a specialised healthcare program designed for patients dealing with chronic or terminal medical conditions and complex needs that require ongoing care from a multidisciplinary team. This arrangement is particularly beneficial for patients who already have a GP Management Plan in place and require coordinated care from at least three collaborating health or care providers. By participating in a TCA, patients gain access to five Medicare-subsidised allied health sessions per calendar year, helping to alleviate the financial burden associated with comprehensive care.

Healthcare Assessments

At HEMAC, we prioritise holistic healthcare solutions tailored to meet the diverse needs of our community. Our practitioners are skilled in conducting thorough healthcare assessments, which involve identifying specific needs related to a patient’s health condition and outlining a plan to address those needs within the healthcare system or skilled nursing facility. Through a combination of physical exams, health history evaluations, and ongoing monitoring, we ensure that each patient receives comprehensive care aligned with their individual health goals and preferences.

We offer a range of specialised healthcare plans to cater to various needs within our community, including General Health, Mental Health, Senior Health, Children’s Health, and Family Healthcare Plans. Each plan is carefully tailored to address specific health concerns and achieve desired outcomes, reflecting our commitment to personalised and patient-centered care.

Diagnostic Testing

Diagnostic testing plays a crucial role in healthcare by aiding in the diagnosis, screening, prognosis, monitoring, and confirmation of disease status for patients. At HEMAC, we utilise diagnostic testing to provide accurate and timely assessments for our patients. This may include in-house tests such as ECGs and pathology specimens, as well as referrals to external clinics for advanced imaging studies like MRIs, X-rays, and ultrasounds. By leveraging a combination of in-house and external resources, we ensure that our patients receive the comprehensive diagnostic evaluations needed to guide their treatment and care plans effectively.
