CONNECT Care through Partnerships

With our CONNECT pillar we are focusing on enhancing our relationships with partners across the continuum of care, including primary care. To further system integration this pillar will concentrate on the following areas:

Advance integrated care

  • Continue implementation of bundled care models involving coordinated efforts across multiple care providers and interprofessional team collaboration.
  • Implement Breast Cancer Patient Portal in an effort to improve the holistic quality of life for cancer survivors by facilitating the transfer of care and reducing ongoing costs.
  • Continue enabling supportive care clinics for early palliative care intervention to increase patient satisfaction and quality of care.
  • Optimize care coordination through evaluation of existing approaches to implement best practice methods for integrated care at North York General Hospital. 

Enhance primary care and specialist collaboration

  • Continue to improve primary care access to hospital resources in an effort to reduce emergency department usage and implement additional information sharing tools to improve access to patient information.
  • Continue to improve connections between family physicians and specialists to support patient transitions in care.

Surgeon Dr. Fahima Osman has teamed up with software developer Verto to develop CareHub, a new app to improve care for breast cancer survivors. This project is funded in part by the Government of Ontario’s Health Technologies Fund, which is administered through the Ontario Centres of Excellence and the Office of the Chief Health Information Strategist.
