A Vision For My Health Teams

Primary Care Networks
Primary care in Manitoba has made significant progress in recent years. Manitoba is building on the many successful initiatives and efforts, and moving forward. The Province of Manitoba is supporting primary care practices and RHAs in a number of ways, including the development or enhancement of My Health Teams.

At the heart of the network is you, the patient or healthcare user.  My Health Teams are about teams of care providers (whether located in the same offices or virtually connected online) that work with you to make sure you get the care you need, when you need it.

More About My Health Teams

My Health Teams will be built around strong partnerships.  Teams of care providers will work together to plan and deliver services for a geographic area or specific community or population.

My Health Teams are less about physical space, and more about leveraging and building on existing services and enhancing them so that consumers are offered more coordinated and comprehensive care. 

Most of all, My Health Teams are about providing excellent service to Manitobans that meets community needs.  Once well-established, all My Health Teams must provide a common set of services to their communities. Click here for information on the key elements of My Health Teams.

My Health Teams Goals

Inter-professional My Health Teams will develop services to ensure people are more informed and involved in planning their own care. Other goals of My Health Teams include:

  1. Improving access to primary care for all Manitobans.
  2. Demonstrating quality and safety in Primary Care
  3. Increasing the focus on the patient and patient-centred primary care.
  4. Connecting care providers within and across geographic boundaries to provide seamless transitions in care.
  5. Enhancing efficiency in primary care and supporting sustainability of the health system.

Services in My Health Teams will build on the work of Physician Integrated Networks (PIN), and will emphasize prevention and coordinated disease management, including the identification and reduction of chronic disease risk factors such as physical inactivity and tobacco use.
