About The Program

In the Waterloo Wellington LHIN, an “Integrated Program” is defined as one that supports the planned and coordinated delivery of consistent, high quality health care by health service providers across the region intended to improve the health of Waterloo Wellington residents.

This program definition builds upon the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s (IHI) Triple Aim approach which refers to the simultaneous pursuit of improving:

  • the patient experience of care,
  • the health of populations; and
  • the value of health care dollars

The Waterloo Wellington Integrated Wound Care Program (WWIWCP) is a system-wide wound care program that serves to standardize and coordinate wound care practices across the health care continuum in the Waterloo Wellington LHIN and to optimize clinical outcomes for our patients.

The WWIWCP supports the development of coordinated, high quality, evidenced-based care and the improvement of patient experience for all wound types across the spectrum.

Patients, caregivers, acute care partners, complex continuing care/rehabilitation partners, long-term care partners, ambulatory clinic partners, community care partners and primary care partners are instrumental in the co-design of new approaches to high quality, evidence-based care delivery to improve patient experience.

A cross-sectorial approach enhances our coordinated efforts to better serve patients within our community who are dealing with complex wound healing issues, in a way that is safe, cost effective and based on individual needs.

We value your feedback, and would appreciate if you took a few moments to respond to some questions.
