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.

🗓Tuesday, December 20th, 2022

Integration is the lever to enable population health and well-being. A key component of integration is the role of partnering with the volunteer sector to improve outcomes for our patients, caregivers and our population.

In this session, we will take a deep dive to learn firsthand about the role of engaging the volunteer sector from the perspectives of policy-makers, researchers and a person with lived experience. This session will discuss the available evidence, the volunteer sector’s role in policy, and share approaches and practical examples of local work that engages with the volunteer sector.

This is a session you won’t want to miss!

What is Needed to Advance Toward Maturity?

🗓 Tuesday, October 25th, 2022

After nearly 3 years of the OHT initiative, we are asking how OHTs are developing and what is needed to advance toward maturity.

Grounded in the experience of 6 OHTs participating in the HSPN Developmental Evaluation, in October’s HSPN webinar, we are sharing the key themes and findings in advance of our Developmental Report.

Come see if these themes resonate with your experiences and share your stories. We look forward to this exchange
