HealthConnection is a free, searchable directory of resources to help North Shore residents manage their health and chronic conditions.
HealthConnection allows you to search up-to-date information on programs and services to support clients with chronic conditions and health needs. An iPhone app version is also available for free download from iTune’s App Store.
HealthConnection is a directory of health and community programs and services on the North Shore of Metro Vancouver, British Columbia. Social service agencies that support clients in their local community (e.g., peer support programs and transportation services) are also listed.
Physicians and some private home health providers are also included for the convenience of users, but there are no plans to expand the directory to include other private businesses or providers at this time. We do not expressly or implicitly endorse or associate ourselves with private providers and businesses included. We make no statement, and accept no liability regarding their operations.
HealthConnection is made possible through a partnership between the Division of Family Practice and Vancouver Coastal Health. HealthConnection replaces a print directory that was first produced and updated annually by VCH North Shore Chronic Disease Services since 2008. Development of HealthConnection as a mobile and web app was in response to a need first identified by GPs based on the North Shore for a central, easily accessible resource listing programs and services that they could use during routine encounters with clients.
