We’re here to shake things up. Tasmanians deserve an innovative and research-based approach to healthcare, and we’re finding new ways to bring optimism to our sick system.

It might seem counter-intuitive, but it’s possible to save money while also creating better health outcomes. Hospital admissions are expensive and tend to focus on the wrong end of the health journey. Once people are hospitalised it’s often too late for you to make much of a difference.

With Salveo Healthcare, you can get in early with preventative and educational models of care that are based on best practice internationally and proven locally. This is your way to take pressure off the system and free up hospital beds for those people who really need them. You’ll be adding to the global evidence base, meaning that it’s not just your clients that benefit. People from all around the world will live a healthier, happier life thanks to you.

And when people are healthy, the benefits flow out into the economy and into society itself – and of course, back into our healthcare system and to your bottom line

The program

The Advanced Preventive Care (APC) program is based on one that has been running overseas for over 2 decades and has been modified to suit Australian context. Health Quality Partners describe the APC as;

Advanced Preventive Care is a system that enables health care providers, specially trained nurses, participants, and families to work together as a team to keep participants healthy. Advanced Preventive Care allows a participant’s team to catch problems early, manage existing chronic and acute conditions, and improve overall quality of life by preventing complications and other negative health outcomes. The heart of Advanced Preventive Care is combining care coordination, disease management, and personalized preventative interventions in long-term, data-driven, and highly reliable programs.

Our system of Advanced Preventive Care for chronically ill, older adults integrates dozens of protocols to support the monitoring, assessments, and preventive interventions needed to help achieve these goals. It also strongly emphasizes participant and family health education, lifestyle behavior change, medication management, self-management coaching, nutrition, and physical activity. In a randomized controlled trial, this system was proven to save lives, reduce hospitalizations, and decrease health care costs for higher-risk Medicare beneficiaries
