About our Ontario Health Team

Ontario Health Teams (OHTs) being built across the province to provide a new way of delivering more connected care and facilitating access for individuals and their caregivers.

The FLA OHT is committed to developing a team-based health-care system that prioritizes mental, physical, emotional, spiritual and social health and wellness to meet our community’s needs.

Our OHT is founded on a bold vision of offering a People-Centred Health Home for everyone our OHT serves. This includes seven principles for care that is equitable, accessible, connected, collaborative, continuous, holistic, and accountable.

Our work towards this vision is being done in partnership with community members and over 70 organizations, grouped into networks of care centered on the needs of people they serve, including home & community care  and community support services, long-term care, addictions & mental health, primary care, hospitals, specialists, wellness & equity and education & research.

Why build an Ontario Health Team?

The Quadruple Aim outlining four objectives: improving patient experience, improving population health, reducing costs and care team wellbeing

This new vision for health care in Ontario is well-aligned with the ‘Quadruple Aim,’ an internationally-recognized framework that designs and delivers an effective health care system.

 

The four objectives of the Quadruple Aim are:

  1. Improving the patient and caregiver experience;

  2. Improving the health of populations;

  3. Reducing the per capita cost of health care; and,

  4. Improving the work life of providers.

The Frontenac, Lennox & Addington Ontario Health Team (FLA OHT) is a group of health and social service partners who have deep roots in the communities across our region.
