On June 6, 2019, the Connecting Care Act, 2019 came into force, substantially transforming Ontario’s health system. Ontario Health Teams have been created, which are groups of health care providers and organizations that will be jointly clinically and fiscally accountable for delivering a full and coordinated continuum of care. In December, the Government announced the first 24 Approved Ontario Health Teams, while many others remain “In Development” and “In Discovery” across the province.
The Ministry’s Ontario Health Team development process was paused in order for the sector to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. On July 23, 2020, the Government announced the restart of the Ontario Health Team implementation process. Five new Ontario Health Teams have been announced and 17 other groups “In Development” have been invited to submit Full Applications. With this announcement the Government has also introduced new forms, requirements and funding.
