What is an Ontario Health Team?

Ontario Health Teams are a new way of organizing and delivering care in Ontario. Under OHTs, health care agencies come together to form one team that works to better connect and integrate care for people and their families.  More integrated care means better health outcomes, seamless transitions and easier access to the care you need, when you need it. 

OHTs were introduced by the government of Ontario as part of the health care system reform under the new Connecting Care Act. The Act also created Ontario Health, a new provincial agency that will provide broad oversight to the health-care system.
