This case study describes a multi-organisation aged care emergency (ACE) service designed to enable point-of-care assessment and management for older people in residential aged care facilities (RACFs)  in New South Wales, Australia.

"The ACE service offers a model shown to reduce ED presentations and admissions from RACFs, and provide quality care with a focus on the needs of the older person".
