The health and social care providers within Northumberland County have a long history of working together to plan and deliver innovative programs and services for the community. 

Joined by patient and caregiver representatives, we are now moving forward with energy and enthusiasm to determine how we can improve the patient and family experience of health care in our community through the Ontario Health Team (OHT) model. 

Our objectives are to:

  • Improve patient and caregiver experience
  • Improve health outcomes
  • Improve provider work life experience
  • Improve value to the community

Based on our initial proposal to form an OHT, the Ontario Health Team of Northumberland (OHT-N) was one of 31 groups from across the province invited to submit a full application by October 9. The Ministry of Health is expected to review these applications and announce the first OHTs in the fall of 2019.

About Ontario Health Teams

Introduced by the provincial government in February 2019, Ontario Health Teams (OHTs) are a new model of health care delivery that puts patients, families and caregivers at the centre of the health care system. The vision is to better connect different parts of this system by bringing together, as one team, patients, families, communities, providers and system leaders to deliver more coordinated care for people in a defined geographic area. The members of this team, even if in different organizations or physical locations, will work together toward common goals for improving access to, and delivery of, local health care services.

More information about OHTs is available from the Ministry of Health.
