Reimagining our Health System 

Anchor 1

The Ontario Health Team (OHT) model represents a shift in how healthcare is organized and delivered in Ontario. OHTs aim to advance the system “from the ground up,” with community-based healthcare providers, primary care practitioners, and clients forming the foundation.

Collaborative Efforts

At this stage, participation in an OHT is voluntary. However, the response from health and social service providers has been overwhelmingly positive. Hundreds of organizations across the province have come together to collaborate and create OHTs tailored to their specific communities. These teams recognize that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work in healthcare. Each community has unique needs, whether cultural, ethnic, geographic, or economic.

Happy Family

The Road Ahead
The Ontario Health Team model is still in its early stages, but the momentum is strong. At maturity, OHTs will be a unified blend of clinical excellence, patient engagement, community involvement, and digital innovation, all working together to enhance the health and well-being of Ontarians.
