Great news! Acclaim Health will be a part of creating two new Ontario Health Teams (OHTs).
Acclaim Health is one of 5 lead partner organizations selected to spearhead the Connected Care Halton OHT healthcare model serving Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville. The Connected Care Halton OHT – consisting of Halton Healthcare, the Region of Halton, Acclaim Health, Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network, and Dr. Kristianna Martiniuk – has been given approval from the Ministry of Health to submit a full application.
We are also a collaborating partner in the Burlington OHT, which was also approved to submit a full application.
Ontario Health Teams are part of the Ministry of Health’s broader health system transformation strategy to enable patients, families, communities and providers to better work together to achieve better population health outcomes. They will be responsible for delivering care for their patients, understanding their health care history, directly connecting them to specific care needs, and helping 24/7 in navigating the health care system. Only 31 of over 150 applications were selected across the province selected to complete the full OHT application at this time.
We are very excited for the opportunity to use our extensive expertise in home care, community support and palliative care to help create Ontario’s new healthcare model and can’t wait to get started!
