Scarborough SCOPE (Seamless Care Optimizing Patient Experience)
Scarborough SCOPE (Seamless Care Optimizing Patient Experience) helps primary care providers to navigate a wide range of hospital and community services and resources. Our program is a partnership between Scarborough Health Network (SHN) and Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities (SCHC) that features an interprofessional team of experts and specialists. Together, we work collaboratively with primary care providers to support, treat and care for patients and families. Since its launch, SCOPE has helped many patients avoid unnecessary emergency department visits and get the care they need sooner.

Remote Care Monitoring Program for Frail Seniors
The RCM program (designed using the Geriatric Rehabilitation Pathway) provides patients with a tablet with built-in cellular and integrated biometric devices (pulse oximeters, blood pressure cuff, weight scale) that can connect clients virtually with their care providers. Patients are remotely monitored by a RCM clinician Monday-Friday from 9-5 pm. The clinician will provide health coaching to patients to enable self-management of chronic disease, in collaboration with their primary care provider.
