The RCA's Direct Access Priority Process (DAPP) supports early identification of individuals with restorative potential who require inpatient rehabilitative care and facilitates referrals directly from the community. This streamlined process helps individuals receive timely access to rehabilitation by removing acute care as the sole point of access to rehabilitative care beds.
DAPP is being implemented by various health service providers across the province.
