What is an Ontario Health Team?
An Ontario Health Team is a new service delivery model designed to integrate care delivery and funding, which will enable patients, families, communities, providers, and system leaders to better work together, innovate, and build on what is best in Ontario’s health care system. The goal is to provide better, more connected care across the province.
Ontario Health Teams are groups of providers and organizations that are clinically and fiscally accountable for delivering a full and coordinated continuum of care to a defined geographic population.
Under the Ontario Health Team model, patients, families, caregivers, and health care providers will more actively shape how local health care services are delivered and managed. The approach will make it easier for local health care providers to partner and deliver high-quality, coordinated care for their patients and their communities.
