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.

Sense Making Population Health Management in Ontario Health Teams: A Diabetes Example

🗓 Tuesday, February 28th, 2023

Ontario Health Teams are intended to hold fiscal and clinical accountability for an attributed population defined by primary care attachment and hospital referral and use patterns. OHTs will integrate care and use equity-based population health management approaches to deliver better health outcomes and provide better experiences for patients. Doing this requires several resources including population health data, methods to segment the population, indicators to assess improvement opportunities, engagement strategies to involve community, patients and providers in priority setting and co-design, implementation, monitoring and model adjustment. This webinar reviews the challenges faced by OHTs and identifies some key resources and opportunities for OHTs to leverage assets in Ontario to undertake these activities using diabetes management as a case example.
