We anticipate our program of work will support improved quality of life and individual self-management, improved person-centred primary care delivery, and will encourage the adoption of goal-oriented care approaches across primary health care systems.
The Sinai Health System is comprised of Mount Sinai Hospital, Joseph & Wolf Lebovic Health Complex, Bridgepoint Active Healthcare, Circle of Care, and the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute, with the vision to become Canada's leading integrated health system from healthy beginnings to healthy aging for people with complex health needs.
The Bridgepoint Collaboratory Lab, a part of the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute, is the only research institute in Canada that exclusively focuses on addressing complexity - complex chronic disease and disability, and Bridgepoint Active Healthcare being the single largest organization in Canada to do so. The Collaboratory brings together scientists, clinicians, and students from a variety of disciplines and institutions to collaboratively address the growing challenge of health complexity, and puts forth policy recommendations, creates best practices, and develops new tools to help these individuals, caregivers, and providers better manage complex health conditions.
The Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute, ranked in the top ten biomedical research institutes worldwide in terms of quality of science, publishes more than 350 papers in leading scientific journals every year - consistently achieving Canada's highest percentage of papers published in the top 1% of biomedical research journals. In addition, over one third of its internationally-recognized scientists hold Canadian Research Chairs, ranking among the highest proportion of any research institute in the country. The research institute continues to make leading edge discoveries in the areas of: prevention, detection and treatment of diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, breast/prostate/ovarian cancer, sarcoma, pre-eclampsia and complications of pregnancy, neurodegenerative and mental health disorders.
We study the experience of patients within the health system with an aim to developing processes, systems and methods to improve the care for individuals with multiple or complex chronic conditions.
We work with clinicians at Sinai Health System and elsewhere in active research projects geared to improving evidence-informed practice in order to provide the most appropriate and efficient care.
