Health Link

​​​​​​​​​What is Health Link?

Health Link is an innovative collaborative approach that brings together health-care providers in a community to better coordinate the care needs of high-needs patients.​​

Health Links helps with comprehensive care plans

​​​Watch a short video explaining Health Link

When different health-care providers involved in your care work together as one team, they can better coordinate your care throughout the health system – which ultimately leads to better health outcomes. For example, Health Link can encourage faster follow-up and referral to home and community services for patients being discharged from hospital, which reduces the likelihood of re-admission.​​

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Health Link brings together your family doctor and other health-care specialists, home care services and community supports. Through these connections, you will receive better care, spend less time waiting for services and be supported by a team of health-care providers across all levels of the health-care system. All CCACs are participating in Health Link initiatives. Each CCAC's role varies depending on the local Health Link model in place in your region.​

Here are some of the ways you might benefit from Health Link:

  • You will have an individualized comprehensive and coordinated care plan, developed with you  and your care providers
  • You will no longer need to answer the same questions from different providers
  • You will have support to help ensure you are taking the right medications appropriately
  • You will have a care provider you can call, eliminating unnecessary additional emergency department visits
There are seven Health Links in the Mississauga Halton region. The Mississauga Halton CCAC is proud to be a partner in each of these Health Links. ​Watch a video of the East Mississauga Health Link to learn more.
