Across Canada, the health industry has undergone unprecedented change over the last decade. Our National Health Industry experts are leading advisors on health system transformation, innovation and change management, including issues of governance, care delivery and digital health.
In Ontario, the Connecting Care Act, 2019 has substantially restructured the health care delivery system in the Province through the creation of Ontario Health as a central agency and Ontario Health Teams as integrated care delivery collaborations across the continuum of care. Every health service provider and health industry stakeholder will be engaged in the new Ontario Health Team environment.
Members of Miller Thomson’s Health Industry Team are recognized thought leaders and strategic advisors to health and social service organizations of all sizes, and other strategic partners, supporting Ontario Health Teams province-wide through system change.
