Your Health Home
A Health Home is where a patient visits a family doctor and Primary Care Network health professionals.
- To build a lifelong relationship with a primary care physician and health care team (may include health professionals such as dietitians, registered nurses, mental health counsellors, pharmacists and/or nurse practitioners).
- Evidence shows patients who consistently see the same primary care physician have better outcomes and lower health care costs.
- Providers better understand patient needs and are better able to implement long-term strategies.
- Patients are more likely to follow treatment advice and undertake self-management activities.
