Central Local Health Integration Network (CLHIN)
Regular Full Time
Initial Location Newmarket
The Central Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) is one of 14 LHINs transforming health care in Ontario. The LHIN works with local health service providers and communities to design real-life solutions that improve access to care, better coordinate services and improve people’s experience with the health care system.
Reporting to the Senior Manager, Home and Community Care, the Care Connector supports the Health Care Connect Program in providing patients with assistance navigating through a complex health care system. The Care Connector works collaboratively with patients and others in their support network to gather information to make a successful connection with an appropriate primary care provider based on the patient’s care needs. The incumbent will maintain contact with patients on the LHIN priority list to keep them informed about potential connections to a primary care provider. The Care Connector works closely with physicians and nurse practitioners to establish and maintain effective relationships in order to build and maintain an inventory of family health care professionals willing and able to accept new patients.
Scheduled hours and days require flexibility in order to meet the needs of the Central LHIN and its patients. These may include occasional evenings and weekends. Initial area and/or schedule may change in order to facilitate the needs of the Central LHIN in accordance with the ONA Collective Agreement.
