This innovative model brings providers together to ensure better coordination of care for people with complex needs, including seniors, people at end-of-life, and those living with mental health and addiction problems.
With an emphasis on coordinated, patient-centred care, the goals of Health Links are to:
- Improve the health care experience for people with complex needs
- Reduce unnecessary visits to hospital emergency departments, and
- Decrease overall health care costs.
