Primary Care Provider Engagement
Effective primary care is essential to a high-performing health system. Well-integrated, primary care can achieve distinct health, service and system goals simultaneously.
With the exception of primary care services provided through LHIN-funded Community Health Centres, LHINs do not have formal funding authority for most primary care models. However, engaging primary care physicians is paramount to achieving improved linkages between them and the rest of the health system.
Examples of this kind of engagement include the:
- Champlain Primary Care Congress, and
- Champlain Primary Care Quality Practice Facilitation Program.
Primary Care Congress
The Champlain LHIN's Primary Care Congress is an annual engagement and knowledge-exchange event.
Primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, specialists, and other providers come together to participate in learning sessions.
Results from the Congress help inform our planning for health system improvements (see the most recent reports, below).
The event is organized and supported by the LHIN and the University of Ottawa, Faculty of Medicine Office of Continuing Professional Development.
