Ontario Health Teams

Ontario Health Teams (OHTs) are being introduced to provide a new way of organizing and delivering care that is more connected to patients in their local communities. Under OHTs, health care providers (including hospitals, doctors and home and community care providers) will work as one coordinated team – no matter where they provide care. We are developing a range of supports for OHTs including practice guides, measurement tools and an approach to evaluating Ontario Health Teams.

ADVANCE Program of Supports 

As one of the Ministry’s Central Support Programs to OHTs, our ADVANCE faculty has redesigned our Programs to support your leadership team virtually.

How are OHTs Advancing in Digital Healt

How are OHTs fairing with digital implementation? Join us for our upcoming November webinar session, where we will learn about the implementation successes and pivots of Ontario Health Teams in implementing digital solutions. Dr. Andrew Sarta will reflect on the implementation of digital practices based on an HSPN survey of proposed digital activities from approved OHT applications across the first 3 cohorts of OHTs. In this session we will review activities under 4 broad sets of digital practices that we identify as Patient Data Access, Partner Data Sharing, Virtual Care, Data Strategy Planning. And we will explore the survey results of OHTs completed in Feb 2023 to find out what was implemented, changed, and not implemented based on their initial applications. Then we’ll hear from Cambridge North Dumfries and Algoma OHTs on their approaches to advancing digital health innovations, the successes, challenges and strategic thinking for integrating digital health in OHTs. Come join the conversation to learn and to share your OHTs experience.
