Collaborative Discharge Planning – An overview

What is Collaborative Discharge Planning?

Collaborative discharge planning is a process to ensure that people under 65 with disability or complex support needs in hospital, can achieve an effective and timely discharge back
into the community with National Disability Insurance System (NDIS) supports.

What is involved in Collaborative Discharge Planning?

It involves collaboration between health clinicians, support coordinators, community, housing and support providers. All these groups work together with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to confirm and activate NDIS supports for a person with a complex disability while they’re in hospital, so they can successfully transition from hospital back to their home, or to alternative housing such as specialist disability accommodation (SDA).
