Building Better Care Together
Muskoka & Area Ontario Health Team is co-designing and transforming local care to an equitable, accessible and sustainable system anchored in primary care, with patients, families and caregivers at the centre.
Ontario Health Teams (OHTs) are a new model of health care delivery that puts patients, families and caregivers at the centre of the system.
Muskoka & Area Ontario Health Team is a collaboration of local healthcare providers and organizations working together to improve patient outcomes and population health, maximize the healthcare system and improve the clinical staff experience.
Muskoka & Area OHT relies on strong partnerships to build a more integrated healthcare system. Currently we are a formal alliance of 14 local health and social service signatory partners.
If you are a community member, caregiver, or patient receiving care in Muskoka & Area, these resources are designed to help you better navigate our healthcare system.
How We Help
Currently, Muskoka & Area OHT’s scope of services focuses on improving care coordination and care transitions for priority populations (currently those 65 and older). We plan to continue to expand the continuum of services through new partnerships and collaboration with long-term care and palliative care.
