Continuity of Care
CONTINUITY OF CARE
Patients live healthier, fuller lives when they receive care from a responsible provider whojourneys with them and knows how their health changes over time.
The PMH enables and fosters long-term relationships between patients and the care team,thereby ensuring continuous care across the patient’s lifespan.
PMH teams ensure continuity of care is provided for their patients in different settings, including the family practice office, hospitals, long-term care and other community-based institutions, and the patient’s residence.
A PMH serves as the hub that ensures coordination and continuity of care related to all the medical services their patients receive throughout the medical community.
There is evidence from across Canada that the PMH model is making a difference. Visit our Evidence page to see it for yourself!
