The Health Link approach to coordinated care planning

Health Links is a philosophy of care. It’s a new way of doing things that will improve a person’s wellbeing and make our health system more efficient.


People with different care needs see a lot of different people for support. We know how hard it is to arrange and travel to appointments, or keep all of the information straight. Coordinated care planning brings the full care team together to develop a care plan based on the person's unique needs and goals. It’s a new way of doing things that improves a person’s wellbeing and helps make our health care system more efficient.

Exactly how much does coordinated care planning help patients?
