Bonavista Primary Health Care


Primary health care is about providing the right care at the right time in the right place – a focus on healthy living by prevention, health promotion and support for self-management, improved coordination and continuity of care.

In 2016, a unique partnership developed between Eastern Health and community representatives. The Bonavista Primary Health Care Community Advisory Committee (CAC) was formed to re-design primary health care in the region – exploring innovative and cost-effective ways to improve the quality and delivery of health-care services. This included implementation of one of the province’s first electronic medical records (EMR) – a single patient record that is more readily available, up-to-date and results in more efficient diagnosis and more effective treatment.

As the following video shows, the result has been a successful model of health-care delivery that is now being adopted throughout the eastern region.
