The first SCOPE program was launched in 2012 by Women’s College Hospital and University Health Network with funding from the Toronto Central LHIN, led by Dr. Pauline Pariser. The SCOPE model connects primary care providers (PCPs) to specialists and other care providers to provide urgent access to advice for their patients. Urgent is defined as a plan of care for the patient needs to be determined within 48 hours, with the exception of Home and Community Care Coordination, where urgent is defined as within 4 hours OR services required by 8pm the next business day. Using a central phone number, the SCOPE model connects providers to interprofessional advice/resources.
