Kawartha Lakes Haliburton Ontario Health Team Launches New Health And Wellbeing Service Navigation Platform

KAWARTHA LAKES-The Kawartha Lakes Haliburton Ontario Health Team (KLH-OHT) announced the launch of a new online health and wellbeing service navigation platform.

“The launch of this platform continues the KLH-OHT’s work towards increasing navigation support and our goal for our communities is to ensure that everyone has access to supportive community resources. The new service navigation platform provides better access to those points of care and furthers a ‘no wrong door’ approach in accessing supports and services.”   said Stephanie MacLaren, Kawartha Lakes Haliburton Ontario Health Team Executive Director

This new platform allows users to easily search for local programs and services offered by providers in Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton County. When users visit the website, they can easily find available services close to home and in some cases can self-refer or book an appointment directly through the platform.

“We are also excited to introduce our new navigator function that allows residents to speak directly with a representative about their health service navigation questions. If residents have questions about accessing health services, they can contact us at 705-934-1439.” said officials in a press release.

This online navigation platform focuses on enhancing access to programs and services for older adults, as well as mental health and addictions services, and child and youth services. It also serves as a means of supporting referrals between local service providers so that we can work together to ensure our residents have access to all available support and services.

Visit www.klhoht.ca/find-services to view our new service navigation platform and explore health and wellbeing programs available for self-referral.

“Sometimes finding and accessing the right health programs can be a challenge and you just want a voice on the phone to help you find what you are looking for. The KLH-OHT is here to support our community by helping residents connect to local supportive programs. Help is just a phone call away.”  said Christine Keenan, Kawartha Lakes Haliburton Ontario Health Team Navigation Representative

Kawartha Lakes Haliburton Ontario Health Team (KLH-OHT) is a group of healthcare providers and organizations as well as patient, family and caregiver members working together toward advancing integrated care.
