Connected Care Update

March 4, 2019

Thank you for signing up to receive regular email updates about Ontario's long-term plan to build a connected, sustainable and patient-centric public health system.

On February 26, 2019, the government introduced The People's Health Care Act, 2019, that would, if passed, support the establishment of local Ontario Health Teams that connect health care providers and services around patients and families, and that would integrate multiple existing provincial agencies into a single health agency – Ontario Health.

Ontario's new plan would improve access to services and patient experience. Organizing health care providers to work as one coordinated team, focused on patients and specific local needs, will help people more easily navigate the system and experience easy transitions from one health provider to another. Integrating multiple provincial agencies and specialized provincial programs into a single agency would provide a central point of accountability and oversight for the health care system. This would improve clinical guidance and support for providers, and enable better-quality care for patients.

In the weeks and months ahead, you will receive regular email updates that can also be shared with staff members, colleagues and stakeholders.

Your feedback on the overall transformation of the health care system is important. You can provide your input to connectedcare@ontario.ca.
