The plan recognises that in rural and regional Victoria the population is growing, as is the
prevalence of chronic disease and healthcare utilisation. Planning for health service provision needs to be responsive to these changes, and there is an expectation that the nature of service delivery must continue to evolve. There will need to be a particular focus on building the capacity of existing local community-based services to respond to these challenges. The introduction of innovative service models that enable more timely and appropriate access to primary care, secondary and acute services and specialist care, particularly through the better utilisation of telehealth, will be necessary.
