Sunnybrook's new physician referral lookup tool is now available, providing for the first time, the names, clinical focus and contact information for specialists most commonly referred by family doctors in the community. It is part of our new, virtual Community of Care, which offers family physicians a one-stop shop for information on primary care integration – including news, tips, a rounds calendar and a place to chat about integration.
In December, Sunnybrook and our community partners were selected by the province as one of the first 19 Health Links, starting us formally on the path to providing seamless care to those patients most in need.
It builds on work the hospital began in the Spring, engaging family physicians in the community to better understand their needs, conducting surveys and holding outreach interviews, focus groups and open houses. As part of those efforts, family doctors asked for a database of specialists to help them better navigate care for their patients.
