Health Links Resources

Two women reviewing resources

Health Links is an integrated patient-centered approach to care that focuses on enhancing and coordinating the care for patients living with multiple chronic conditions and complex needs.

Innovative practices are identified through broad consultation with LHINs and Health Links through analysis of Quality Improvement Plans, IDEAS project work and Health Quality Transformation Scientific Abstracts. They are systematically assessed using the Innovative Practices Evaluation Framework, and endorsed by the Health Links Clinical Reference Group for spread.

We recommend using the Brief Overview of Innovative Practices Framework to ground your teams to the approach. A more detailed Process Guide for the Innovative Practices Evaluation Framework outlines the approach behind the assessment. Finally, a worksheet for using the Innovative Practices Evaluation Framework has been attached for your use in assessing your local innovations.
