Health Links – a New Health Care Initiative Underway
Health Links are a new model of care across the province where all providers in a community – including primary care, hospital, community care – are charged with coordinating plans at the patient level. Health Links are accountable to LHINs.
The NE LHIN has worked to determine how best these links will work to benefit patients in our region, and guided the efforts of the partners involved. In the North East LHIN, two Health Link pilot projects were among the 19 early adopters announced December 6, 2012.
The realignment work already underway in the Cochrane Hub and Temiskaming District positioned our region well for the Health Links initiative that focuses on a more integrated model of care for Northerners.
Learn about progress with our early adopter Health Links – the Timmins Health Link and the Temiskaming Health Link.
