Current Focus

In Year 1, the Ottawa Health Team - Équipe Santé Ottawa (OHT-ESO) will focus on serving frail older adults (55+) and adults with mental health and addiction issues.

These populations have specific, high needs for care and support. A personalized system that gets it right for them will increase health equity and do better for all.

While frail older adults face many challenges accessing the services and supports they require, those living on a low income and without family support are particularly vulnerable. 

People with mental health and/or addictions issues often seek care through hospital emergency rooms when they would benefit from more appropriate care in the community. Our health team is committed to ensuring everyone can access the supports they need.

Fulfilling the "Quadruple Aim"

The Quadruple Aim challenges health systems to provide a better experience for clients, families, caregivers and service providers, achieve better individual and population health outcomes, and deliver greater value and efficiency. Over time, our OHT-ESO will work to achieve those Quadruple Aim benefits for everyone in our service area.
