Improving care for high needs patients

Announced in December 2012 by the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, Health Links is an innovative collaborative approach that brings together health-care providers in a community to better coordinate the care needs of high-needs patients.     ""

CCACs are working hand-in-hand with physicians, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, hospital staff, and service providers to implement these new networks in communities across Ontario.

Some of the key benefits of Health Links include:

• Robust primary care involvement in the care of complex patients
• Higher quality of care and improved access to needed services
• Shared accountability, better communication and teamwork between health-care providers
• Funding flexibility to ensure resources are focused where they are needed most
• Building models around voluntary partnership and leveraging existing infrastructure
• Leadership from all participants, including hospitals, primary care specialists and CCACs

The Health Links 'networ""k' approach enables flexibility and allows for the shifting of resources between health-care providers to better address community and patient needs. Health-care providers participating in Health Links are jointly accountable for achieving better outcomes for patients.
