The vision for Ontario Health Teams (OHTs) as set out by the Ministry of Health (MOH) and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) is to create integrated care systems in Ontario to improve health outcomes, patient and provider experience, and value.

At maturity, every Ontarian will have access to an Ontario Health Team that will:

  • Provide a full and coordinated continuum of care for an attributed population within a geographic region
  • Offer patients 24/7 access to coordination of care and system navigation services and work to ensure patients experience seamless transitions throughout their care journey
  • Be measured, report on and improve performance across a standardized framework linked to the ‘Quadruple Aim’: better patient and population health outcomes; better patient, family and caregiver experience; better provider experience; and better value
  • Operate within a single, clear accountability framework
  • Be funded through an integrated funding envelope
  • Reinvest into front line care
  • Improve access to secure digital tools, including online health records and virtual care options for patients – a 21st century approach to health care
