My Health Team (MyHT)

In December 2019, Brandon Clinic Medical Corporation partnered with My Health Team Brandon. The Brandon Clinic My Health Team supports patients who call Brandon Clinic their “home clinic”

 

What is a home clinic?

Home Clinics are primary care clinics that act as your home base within the health care system. Home Clinics provide patients with timely access to care, coordinate their health care within the health care system, and manage their health care records. Having a home base helps support comprehensive and continuous care throughout a patient's life.

What are My Health Teams (MyHTs)?

My Health Teams are partnerships that bring different care providers together (whether located in the same office or connected online) to work with you to make sure you get the care you need when you need it.  MyHT includes your doctor or nurse practitioner but also other health professionals such as a social worker, dietitian, pharmacist and mental health shared care counselor. As a patient of My Health Team, you will be treated as a partner in planning and managing your care and will be provided with the tools and resources to help you do so.

                                              

The Brandon Clinic’s MyHT include a Registered Dietitian, Clinical Pharmacist, Mental Health Worker and access to Cognitive Behavior Therapy Classes.

 

How to access My Health Team Providers?

Brandon Clinic patients can be referred to these providers through their family doctor and in some cases, can self-refer for their services.
