New Guelph and Area Ontario Health Team to Provide Better Connected Care for Patients
Ontario Health Teams Part of Province’s Plan to End Hallway Health Care
Guelph, ON – Nov 29, 2019
Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health, was at the Guelph-Wellington Paramedic Service’s headquarters to announce the Guelph and Area Ontario Health Team as one the first 24 teams in the province to implement a new model of organizing and delivering health care that better connects patients and providers in their communities to improve patient outcomes. Through an Ontario Health Team, patients will experience easier transitions from one provider to another, including, for example, between hospitals and home care providers, with one patient story, one patient record and one care plan.
