CHARD - Community Healthcare and Resource Directory
CHARD is a free, secure, web-based database for health care providers designed to provide comprehensive, up-to-date listings for community health care referral resources, searchable by type of service or geographic proximity.
The directory contains information for nearly 80% of the referral resources accessed by FPs, including programs and services, as well as BC’s 6000 specialist physicians and nearly 18,000 allied health professionals in cancer, cardiac, diabetes, geriatric, infectious disease, HIV/AIDS, musculoskeletal, neurodegenerative, palliative, renal, and respiratory care.
Many listings include a description of services, hours of operation, maps and parking details, patient eligibility criteria, referral forms, and patient information materials.
