Ontario Health Teams focusing on coordinating care

By CJ Goater Jan 26, 2024 | 3:56 PM

The provincial government is investing up to $130.5 million starting in April to provide every Ontario Health Team with $2.25 million over three years to better coordinate people’s care by connecting people to different types of care throughout their care journey and providing 24/7 help navigating the health care system.

“Ontario Health Teams play a critical role in transforming the way people access health care by building a better-connected and more convenient health care system that puts people at the centre of their care journey,” explained Sylvia Jones, deputy premier and minister of health.

Ontario Health Teams bring together a wide variety of healthcare providers from across health and community sectors, including primary care, hospitals, home and community care, and mental health and addiction services.

By working as one collaborative team, providers can better coordinate care and share resources, while giving patients the choice in who they see for their care.
