Health Care Navigator

Screen Shot 2015-06-25 at 11.02.31 AMThe Health Care Navigator works to improve coordination of patient care for patients and to reduce barriers by working with different groups:

–    Port Perry Medical Associate’s patients
–    Healthcare teams and
–    Resource providers

The Navigator supports patients learning to navigate the health care, community and social services systems.  Navigators work to facilitate timely treatment by identifying patient needs and directing them to sources of emotional, financial, administrative, employment, education or legal support.

Patient navigation involves:

–    Working with members of the health care team to facilitate patient healthcare
–    Promoting patient health and comfort
–    Supporting patients while they learn to self-navigate

Patients do not need a physician referral.  Appointments can be made by calling 905-985-2895 ext. 6070
