An integrated system of care: Better ways to support patients The GPSC has set out a vision to contribute to an integrated system of care; to ensure doctors are better supported to care for patients by working more closely with other providers, teams and networks, and through seamless links to and from the community. This integration will build capacity in the system and enable better access to continuous primary care for more patients. At the heart of an integrated system is the patient medical home – a family practice made up of doctors and team members within the practice. Patient medical homes are linked together with other GPs, health professionals and teams in practice and in the community, as well as health authority and community services in broader, community-based primary care homes.
