We are a group of Algoma-based health care providers working together as an Ontario Health Team – The Algoma Ontario Health Team [AlgomaOHT].
The AlgomaOHT will concentrate its initial efforts to improve co-ordination on frail seniors and patients with health conditions who present to the emergency department that would be better served in the community. When fully implemented, the team will broaden its work to ensure improved coordination of care for all patients, including mental health & addictions and rural health.
We will focus on a full and coordinated continuum of care for our community. When fully implemented, patients will have access to the right care, right team, and right care setting. Individuals will experience seamless transitions throughout their care journey in a system that is understandable, digitally-enabled, and collaborative in its approaches to care.
