Announced today, SA Health has selected Amplar Home Health as a panel provider to deliver the South Australia Community Care (SACC) program on behalf of the South Australian Government.
Since 2018 Amplar Home Health Pty Ltd – formerly known as Home Support Services Pty Ltd (HSS) – has been a valued health service provider delivering a workforce of nurses and allied health providers to deliver in home care to the community. Service types available through SACC include:
- Wound Management
- Medication Management
- Paediatric care
- Continence Management
- End of Life Care (EoLC)
- Allied Health
- Post Procedural Accommodation/Transport
- Equipment (to support hospital avoidance and discharge)
- Interpreting Services
- Activities of Daily Living (ADL) – personal care
Amplar Health CEO Dr Andrew Wilson said the new contract was a credit to the dedicated health professionals who work tirelessly to ensure patients receive the care they need in the comfort of their own home.
“In the past year, our Amplar Home Health team in South Australia saw more than 4,400 patients under the SACC program, equating to almost 42,000 at home visits. That’s a significant figure and a reflection of how this program supports the broader health system in South Australia.”
