In effort to move forward with the plan to create a more integrated and connected health care system centered around the patient, the Ontario government has passed legislation to implement a centralized agency of health oversight called: Ontario Health. Ontario Health will be created through consolidating multiple provincial health agencies and organizations.

Within Ontario Health, Ontario Health Teams (OHTs) will be established across the province through a collaboration of local providers or organizations, who will be clinically and fiscally responsible for delivering a coordinated care to a defined geographic population. The ultimate goal of Ontario Health Teams is to “provide better, more integrated care across the province.”

As the Ontario Health Team model continues to develop over the next few years, OPA will continue to support our members by providing them with updated information on the transformation, and what it means for physiotherapists in Ontario.

The first of these resources based on current available information is a webinar for OPA members:

JOINING THE CONVERSATION Physiotherapists and Ontario Health Teams.
