The Way Forward: Care Coordination Being Led by Primary Care
This year’s focus for the Leadership Triad Session is on care coordination and building primary care as the foundation of the health care system, such that more Ontarians have access to comprehensive primary care and coordination of care through primary care teams. Given the Minister’s LHIN mandate letter from May 1 2017 “to develop and implement a plan with input from primary care providers, patients, caregivers and partners that embeds care coordinators and system navigators in primary care to ensure smooth transitions of care between home and community care and other health and social services as required”, we believe care coordination to be a relevant and timely topic for both LHIN and AFHTO leaders.
This Leadership workshop is open only to board members, board chairs, EDs and Lead MDs or NPs of AFHTO member organizations and will include senior leadership members from the LHINs. Be part of the dialogue and provide meaningful guidance to the LHIN by assisting them in developing the plan of transitioning care coordination resources to primary care in order to improve patient outcomes through much greater continuity and coordination of patient-centred care.
