Benefits for Patients


Using MCAP ensures patients are treated in the setting that matches their clinical needs as determined by the clinician. Studies indicate that if a patient is in a setting designed to provide care at a level that does not match their needs, the quality of care they receive suffers, even if the setting is designed to handle patients with more acute or intensive needs.  MCAP supports quality care by facilitating:

  • Care co-ordinated to meet individual needs
  • Fewer hospital stays and reduced length of stay
  • Improved discharge planning
  • Avoid patient exposure to Hospital Acquired Infections
  • Care closer to home
  • Improved patient choice
  • Improved patient experience and satisfaction
  • Improved quality of care
