Patients Connected: The number of people registered in Health Care Connect who have been referred to a family health care provider through Health Care Connect. From February 12, 2009 to June 30, 2017, 91.4% of registered patients have been referred to a provider.

High Needs Patients Connected: The number of people that have been determined to have greater health needs based upon self-reported health need and have been referred to a family health care provider through Health Care Connect.

Approximately 10% of registrants are high needs patients. From February 12, 2009 toJune 30, 2017, 89.8% of registered high needs patients have been referred to a provider.

Notes:

  1. These figures may include individuals who have registered for the program more than once.
  2. Not all patients that are referred through HCC become attached to a family health care provider.
  3. These figures may include individuals who have registered for the program more than once. A high needs patient is an individual with one or more co-morbidities, or frail. Key criteria include self-assessed patient health status, chronic conditions or health problems, activity limiting disability, mental health status and body mass index.
  4. As of April, 2017, the ministry has implemented a more precise definition of “active” patients in the reporting of Health Care Connect data. “Active” patients are now defined merely as those who have not exited the program. Before April, 2017, “active” patients were defined as patients whose profiles did not list a reason for having left the program.
