The SCOPE Initiative—launching in November 2021

SCOPE-Seamless Care Optimizing the Patient ExperiencePhysician-Leads



SCOPE started as a grassroots co-design between the Community Care Access Centre (CCAC), University Health Network (UHN), Women’s College Hospital (WCH) and community primary care providers. It is being scaled across the Toronto region, and is the scaffold for Ontario Health Teams in and beyond Toronto (i.e., Peel Region, London, & Halton.)

SCOPE offers access to a virtual interdisciplinary team for all primary care providers, including non-HHS affiliated physicians and the physicians working in Halton not belonging to a Family Health Teams in Halton.

SCOPE will connect primary care physicians in the community to consultants within the following streams: Primary Care, Mental Health and Addictions, Diagnostic Imaging, General Internal Medicine, and Palliative Care; and with community agencies and support programs.
