Connected Care icon


A PMH is connected with the health and social services available in the community for patient referrals.



Defined links are established between the PMH and other medical specialists, and medical care services in the local or nearest community to ensure timely referrals.



The PMH serves as a hub for collecting and sharing relevant patient information through information technology. It ensures the continuity of patient information received throughout the medical and social service settings.


There is evidence from across Canada that the PMH model is making a difference. Visit our Evidence page to see it for yourself!
