Local health hubs for rural and Northern communities: An integrated service delivery model whose time has come (2013)

RRR Health HubsThe vast geography of Northern Ontario makes it challenging to deliver health care to people who live outside of larger communities that have hospitals. A recent report by the Ontario Hospital Association recommends that Local Health Hubs are well-positioned to coordinate services for residents in northern and rural communities. A Health Hub is based on co-located services such as acute care, primary care, long-term care, and community-based services that provide clinical links for patients to health services.

EENet has developed a Research Report Round-up of the report, “Putting Innovation to Work: Improving Chronic Disease Management and Health System Sustainability in Ontario.”

Research Report Round-ups are brief summaries of research reports, presented in a user-friendly format.
