Evidence has demonstrated that engaging citizens to influence service delivery results in higher quality care outcomes often at a lower cost.

Health care funding is contingent on community engagement and our health system is looking for innovations to help improve health outcomes and resource efficiencies.

Patient and community engagement is foundational to much of the work that is expected of the health care system such as:

  • Building the patients’ medical home model and improving care in the community
  • Service planning

  • Clinical and patient care standards
  • Clinical guidelines and patient pathway development

A CCI approach will embed meaningful engagement practices, will build and sustain a local engagement culture within various care settings.
