Program Goals – What We Plan to Achieve

The goals of a Family Practice Network are ultimately about contributing to an integrated system of care. The overarching intent is to build capacity in a system focused on the patient.  

Family Practice Networks contribute to this effort through the following goals:

  • Improved coordination of patient care across the continuum of care, and between providers and community-based services and supports.
  • Improved identification and management of a full range of comprehensive care services.
  • Enhanced access to primary care services, such as through the provision of more flexible and conveniently scheduled after-hours clinics and improved access to same-day or next-day urgent appointments.
  • Improved health outcomes, particularly among high-needs populations and those living with chronic disease(s).
  • Increased collaboration between local family physicians, and between family physicians and other primary health care providers.
  • Greater collaboration between family physicians and regional health authorities leading to improved alignment on priority issues.
  • Improved recruitment and retention of family physicians, particularly in rural and under-serviced communities.
  • The establishment of collaborative, community-based multidisciplinary teams.
