A Health Link is a team of providers in a geographic area (primary care, hospital, home, community care, long-term care providers community support agencies and other community partners) working together to provide coordinated health care to patients with multiple complex conditions – often seniors – with the patient at the center. Providers design a care plan for each patient and work together with patients and their families to ensure they receive the care they need.
As of January 2014, there are 69 community Health Links in Ontario and more are being planned. See a list of the current Health Links.
Health Links coordinate health care services for patients with complex needs. Complex patients might be seniors, people with multiple chronic conditions such as cardiac, diabetes and/or mental health issues.
