Ontario Health Teams at maturity

A vision for OHTs

OHTs are evolving across Ontario under articulated multi-year plans which endeavour to meet the needs of local residents.

At maturity, every Ontarian will have access to an Ontario Health Team that will:

  • Provide a full and coordinated continuum of care for an attributed population within a geographic region;
  • Offer 24/7 access to coordination of care and system navigation services and work to ensure community members experience seamless transitions throughout their care journey;
  • Be measured, report on and improve performance across a standardized framework linked to the Quadruple Aim:
    • better patient and population health outcomes;
    • better patient/client, family and caregiver experience;
    • better provider experience; and
    • better value
  • Operate within a single, clear accountability framework;
  • Be funded through an integrated funding envelope;
  • Reinvest into front line care; and
  • Improve access to secure digital tools, including online health records and virtual care options – a 21st century approach to health care
