Ontario Health Teams

Ontario Health Teams (OHTs) are changing how health care is delivered in the province so that patients receive better-integrated care in their community.

The evidence is clear: organizations that effectively engage physicians in health system design, change processes, and leadership development opportunities are more likely to experience improved outcomes.

To provide a road map for OHT primary care leads, the Primary Care Maturity Model and Key Enablers for Ontario Health Teams (July 10, 2020) offers recommendations of the Ontario Primary Care Council, and was developed collaboratively with patients and families, primary care leads, local primary care support teams, hospital leadership, home and community care leadership and key data and analytics supports. 

Similarly, our tip sheet focuses on ways OHTs can maximize the involvement of family doctors for the benefit of their OHT and the patients they serve.
