The HITH program sits within the Department of Sub-acute, Aged & Community Services and provides care to a range of medical, surgical and sub-specialty patients who require acute medical management that can be delivered in the home environment.

The HITH programme was started in April 2020 and currently has 12 beds, and the service runs 7-days per week. At presents we are receiving 65 referrals a month, totalling up to 400 contact visits and average length of stay of 5-6 days. The service is currently undergoing an expansion process and by the end of 2023 should have 22 beds, which will incorporate a Geriatric Evaluation and Management (GEM) service. Our case mix and the age of our patients is broad. Patients are admitted from inpatient wards or the emergency department at the Royal Hobart Hospital. They can also be admitted directly from the community on to the service. These patients are then cared for in community health centres, their homes, or residential aged care facilities.

Our HITH registrar positions have accreditation with RACP for Basic Physician Training; RACP & ACRRM for GP & Rural Remote trainees; and ACEM for Emergency trainees. This is an excellent position for registrars who are interested in providing acute medical care in the community. Registrars would have access to teaching activities provided by their specialist training programmes as well as the teaching provided by the HITH team. 

Greater Hobart and Tasmania offers an excellent lifestyle for those seeking a sea change.  At the RHH, we pride ourselves in being able to combine that with the training and opportunities our registrars need to pursue each of their varied career goals in medicine.
