Health Links
“Health Links will break down barriers for Ontarians,
making access to health care easier and less complicated.
By encouraging local health providers to work together to
co-ordinate care for individual patients, we’re ensuring our
most vulnerable patients – seniors and those with complex
conditions – get the care they need and don’t fall between the
cracks.”
Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care

A New Model of Care in Ontario
•
Health care providers in a
geographic area work together
to provide coordinated care
for patients
•
Patient-centred solutions
•
Initially focused on people
with the highest needs /
highest cost to the health
system
•
Brings family health care into
the broader health care system
• faster access to primary care
• faster ability to connect
patients with specialists, home
care services and other
community supports
• improved transitions of care

How Champlain Health Link Areas were Defined
Applying the criteria:
Staff studied data for 34 smaller ‘starter’ areas and combined them
into 10 based on:
• Adjacency
• Critical mass (population, people with high needs, primary care and other
providers)
• Population characteristics (distribution & demographics)
• Which hospitals people tend to use
• Our understanding of local areas
• Alignment with census and Ottawa Neighbourhood Study boundaries.
11
Some High-Needs Groups
(Champlain residents 2011-12)
1) Had two+ acute care
hospitalizations: 13,939
• Had a readmission within 30
days: 8,961
2) Had a high cost acute care
hospital stay: 8,145
People with High Needs come in
many shapes and sizes.
No single data definition can
capture the complexity.
3) Made 5+ emergency
department visits: 16,305
• Composite: met one or more
criteria: 30,514
• Met all three criteria: 1,117
