The Health TAPESTRY Intervention

The Health TAPESTRY intervention is based on four main parts:

  1. interprofessional primary health care teams that provide health care services to the Health TAPESTRY client and work with them on meeting their goals,
  2. trained community volunteers that connect with clients in their home to gather health and social information and to discuss life and health goals,
  3. community engagement and connections that helps the Health TAPESTRY approach fit to the changing needs of a community by learning from the community and forming partnerships with other organizations, and
  4. the use of technology that connects clients, their health care team, volunteers and the community.

The four parts of Health TAPESTRY each play a role in a process called system navigation. System navigation helps a client understand and access a strong network of community organizations, including their primary care team, as part of their health care.
