The Central East Community Care Access Centre (CECCAC) is seeking a dynamic individual for the position of Project Manager, focusing on Health Links.

A Health Link is a new model of care at the clinical level where all providers in a community, including primary care, hospital, community care, are charged with coordinating plans at the patient level. Health Links will be designed around, and accountable for system-level metrics established by the province. Their initial focus will be on the high users, as we know that this segment of the population uses a disproportionate amount of care at a cost which is not sustainable, nor appropriate for their needs.

Health Links will be accountable to the LHINs and will initially be voluntary, beginning with those partnerships that meet specified requirements. Over time, the entire province would be represented. The Central East LHIN has two Health Links Peterborough and Durham North East with emerging Health Links putting forth Business Plans.
