A Home Clinic is a patient-centred primary care clinic that serves as a patient’s home base within the health-care system.
Home Clinics are primary care clinics that provide patients with timely access to care, coordinate their health care within the health-care system and manage their health-care records. Having a home case helps support comprehensive and continuous care throughout a patient’s life.
While Shared Health helps to support Home Clinics, the initiative is run through Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living. For more information on Home Clinics, visit the Manitoba Health, Senior and Active Living’s Home Clinics page.
My Health Teams
My Health Teams plan and deliver comprehensive services for a geographic area or a specific community or population to help ensure all Manitobans get the care they need, when they need it. Home Clinics are a component of My Health Teams, which is a foundational part of a comprehensive and integrated primary health-care system. Home Clinics, as well as many other primary health-care services such as dieticians, diabetes specialists, mental health specialists, etc., can become part of a My Health Team.
This vision is that Manitoba’s Home Clinics will be the patient’s home base and will help patients access the supports and services available – the My Health Team – to ensure the comprehensive care of its patients.
