Research Report Round-up: Local health hubs for communities in rural and Northern Ontario
The vast geography of Northern Ontario makes it challenging to deliver health care to people who live outside of larger communities. 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 patients with clinical links to the health services they need.
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.” Read about the results of the survey and the researchers’ recommendations on the EENet website.
Research Report Round-ups are brief summaries of research reports, presented in a user-friendly format. To read EENet’s clear language report summaries, visit www.eenet.ca.
