The Capital and Coast and Hutt Valley services carry out needs assessments for clients aged over 65 or with a chronic health condition and high support requirements.

Capital & Coast Care Coordination Centre

The Capital and Coast Care Coordination Centre (CCCCC) is the largest of the three Care Coordination services and has been contracted to the Capital and Coast Te Whatu Ora since September 2005.

The Centre is contracted to provide a Needs Assessment and Service Coordination (NASC) role for the > 65-year-old population in the Wellington catchment area.

The Clinical Assessors within the service complete approximately 250 interRAI assessments per month in the community and assist CC Te Whatu Ora staff in completing assessments in both of the regional hospitals.

The interRAI assessment is a Ministry of Health-mandated assessment process and every client receiving CC Te Whatu Ora-funded support in the community will participate in an interRAI assessment. CCCCC assessors are assigned geographically to GP practices.

The purpose of the service is to assist individuals with health and disability needs to achieve quality, cost-effective outcomes to enable them to live as independently as possible, optimising time spent at home.

The assessors at the CCCCC can access the whole range of community supports available within the CC Te Whatu Ora area (respite, day care, carer support, etc) and can advise regarding other Non-Government services available. Staff may also advise regarding residential care, particularly about which level of care may be required after all other options have been considered.

The service also provides the NASC function for support under long-term support chronic health conditions funding. This is funding for people aged under 65 years who have a very high level of support need due to a chronic health condition.
