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 on improving coordination on frail seniors and patients with health conditions that would be better served in the community, rather than in the emergency department. 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.
The Algoma OHT will collaborate in a model of care that is person-centred, efficient, and simplified for both individuals and providers.
An Integrated health system focused on the unique needs of Algoma residents, where people receive seamless, effective care where and when they need it.
