Interfaces between the aged care and health systems in Australia
Summary

People using aged care also use health care services. These reports present results from a project that linked data across aged care and health care services, and will provide information for:

  • The first results of this project
  • General practitioner use by people living in permanent residential aged care 2012–13 to 2016–17
  • Movements between aged care and hospital 2016–17
These reports examine how people’s use of GPs and specialists, patterns of prescriptions dispensed to them, and their hospital use can vary with use of aged care.
