READY Study: Readying hospitalised patients with disability who need NDIS supports for discharge
About the Project
Using administrative data on inpatients who are eligible for NDIS funded supports, the aim is to examine the implementation of the NDIS pathway in the hospital setting and post-discharge funded supports. This will compare pathway and discharge planning processes, and analyse discharge delays for inpatients with disability leaving hospital. People with disability leaving hospital often bear the risk of burden due to inadequate support at discharge. The benefits of the project includes: informing improvements in NDIS pathway processes by identifying inefficiencies and blockages and the tools that are likely to support streamlined and collaborative processes and minimise discharge risk. A broader benefit of the project will maximise the positive impact of the NDIS by recommending ways to reduce discharge risks and health/NDIS interface failures.
