Primary care forms the basis of health care, the portal to access the health system. Part of developing quality primary care means taking language into consideration throughout a patient’s journey, and offering better coordination or care, as well as easing navigation of the health system.
To help locate a culturally and linguistically adapted service or resource, the North Simcoe Muskoka Community Care Access Centre (CCAC), in collaboration with Entité 4 and the North Simcoe Muskoka Local Health Integration Network, has developed a web platform: http://www.nsmhealthline.ca/.
