What is The Comprehensive Chronic and Preventative Care (CCPC) Model?

Comprehensive Chronic and Preventative Care (CCPC) Model Preventative Care focuses on optimising your health to prevent future health problems before they happen.

What is the current mainstream approach to health management?

We tend to only visit the doctor when there is a new symptom or problem e.g. a cough or prescription required. This is akin to taking a car to the mechanics only when it’s making an unusual noise.

If you take your car to the mechanic for an unusual noise, they will examine the car, diagnose a problem, and fix it. The mechanic does not complete a full service at the same time though, it is understood that this occurs separately.

When patients only see their doctor when issues arise, the doctor may be able to briefly check for other emerging health problems, however this is not the same as having a standardised health management schedule to ensure health and wellbeing is optimised and preventable issues are proactively identified prior to developing.

What is the problem with the current approach?

The issue with this model of care is that the focus is on managing health issues when they arise, rather than catching and managing them early (chronic care) or ideally preventing them from occurring (preventative care). As a result, opportunities to maximise health and wellbeing are often missed.

Is there a better way to manage your health?

We believe every person should have the option of receiving optimal healthcare. This should include acute care, as well as Comprehensive Chronic and Preventative Care.

We believe this optimal level of healthcare should be equitable, accessible and affordable for all, regardless of where in Australia you choose to live.

It is with this vision in mind that we have developed our unique Comprehensive Chronic and Preventive Care (CCPC) Model.
