HACC Active Service Model (ASM) Implementation - Three Year Review

AHA was appointed by the Victorian Government to undertake a three-year review of the implementation of the Active Service Model (ASM).

The initial ASM PREPARE practice review and planning tools were developed to assist HACC-funded agencies to:

  • Develop a structured view of their current strengths and areas for improvement in delivering an ASM approach
  • Identify current practices that were already consistent with an ASM philosophy of care
  • Identify changes in structure and practice required to move to an ASM.

This three-year review involved:

  • Implementation of the ASM PREPARE online tools to identify progress by HACC funded organisations in implementing the ASM approach
  • Targeted workshops with a sample of HACC agencies to identify enablers and barriers to ASM approach implementation and to identify priority areas and actions for further implementation of the ASM
  • A final report of key findings from the review process and identification of priority areas and actions to assist Agencies and the department to further embed the ASM approach.
The ASM is a quality improvement initiative that focuses on restorative care and on promoting capacity building in community care service delivery. The goal of the ASM is to assist the HACC target group to live in the community as independently and autonomously as possible.
