Seamless Care Optimizing the Patient Experience “+” Streamlined Access to Outpatient Services
SCOPE+ is a platform that promotes collaborative work between primary care, hospital services, and community health partners to serve patients with complex needs.
SCOPE+ is a virtual interprofessional care team that supports primary care providers through a single point of access. Family physicians and nurse practitioners registered with SCOPE+ can connect to internists, outpatient services, diagnostic imaging, and home and community care services.
