About The Cardiac Care Network of Ontario
The Cardiac Care Network of Ontario (CCN) is a system support to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC), Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs), hospitals, and care providers dedicated to improving quality, efficiency, access and equity in the delivery of the continuum of cardiovascular services in Ontario. In addition to helping plan, coordinate, implement and evaluate cardiovascular care in Ontario, CCN is responsible for developing, maintaining and reporting on the provincial cardiac and vascular registries. In the role of monitoring and enhancing quality of cardiac and vascular services in Ontario, CCN develops strategies, based on best practices, to better manage cardiovascular disease across the continuum of care, including strategies to prevent acute hospital readmissions, decrease demand on emergency departments and decrease the need for initial and repeat procedures. The Cardiac Care Network of Ontario is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
