Integrated Plan of Care
Integrated Plan of Care Process
The Integrated Plan of Care (IPC) process was created by the Ottawa Service Collaborative to address the need for continuity of care for children and youth with complex needs and their families. The IPC process is about connecting the child or youth, their family and/or supporters, and cross-sector service providers as equal partners to create a needs and strengths-based coordinated care plan.
“In one case that I’m thinking of, he wouldn’t be where he is right now if we were all working individually. I don’t think the family would be where they are now if we were all working as individuals. I think that they feel, if you asked the family, they feel much more supported than they did even six months ago. They’ve certainly identified that this process has been very helpful.” – Agency Implementation Lead

It involves children/youth, families, supporters and service providers from different agencies, organizations and sectors collaborating together. The Integrated Plan of Care process connects cross-sectoral service providers, families and children/youth as valued partners to create a coordinated care plan that is focused on the understood strengths and needs of the child / youth and their families.
