Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health

SEMPHN commissions services aimed at improving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s access to high quality and culturally appropriate care. This includes care coordination, mental health, alcohol and drugs, and suicide prevention services.

Integrated Team Care (ITC) Program

The Care Coordination and Supplementary Services (CCSS) and the Improving Indigenous Access to Mainstream Primary Care (IIAMPC) activities have combined to form the Integrated Team Care (ITC) program.

The ITC encourages a team approach to support patients across the full pathway of care, from encouragement and assistance, to accessing health care, to the provision of care by a variety of health professionals. This program allows greater flexibility to tailor the mix of workforce positions within Indigenous teams.

SEMPHN opened a request for proposals to deliver the Integrated Team Care (ITC) program within the catchment in August 2016. 

As a result of this process, SEMPHN commissioned Star Health Group Ltd and the Dandenong and District Aborigines Co-operative Limited (DDACL) to develop, implement and administer the ITC arrangements from 1 January 2017 to 30 June 2018.

In May 2018 SEMPHN secured the ongoing funding for the Integrated Team Care (ITC) program.  Star Health Group Ltd and the Dandenong and District Aborigines Co-operative Limited (DDACL) were commissioned to continue to deliver the program from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2021.
