The Integrated Health Networks are a joint initiative of the Ministry of Health Services and the Health Authorities. IHNs link patients, family physicians, primary care providers (such as nurses, dietitians, and social workers) and community partners to create coordinated care focused on the needs of the patient.
The networks are customized for each patient, and are designed to directly address the patient’s health care needs.
Integrated Health Network teams may include the following:
The patient is a key partner and team member in his or her own health care.
Examples of Integrated Health Network services include:
- Assistance in identifying patients at risk
- Comprehensive patient assessments by members of an interdisciplinary team
- Integrated care plans
- Direct patient referrals to specialized services such as the Diabetes Education Centre
- Support for building patient registries on the CDM Toolkit
- Education/coaching on group and self-management
- Individualized action plans
Integrated Health Networks are made possible by the Health Innovation Fund, in partnership between the BC Ministry of Health and VIHA.
