Ontario Health Teams: A New Era

At Qualicare Waterloo, we’re deeply passionate about delivering the best possible care to Ontarians in need, helping local communities grow and thrive. That’s why it bothers us that patients in need often struggle to secure timely access to the care they require. With demand higher than ever but resources spread thin across Ontario and elsewhere in Canada, a plan of action is needed.

Thankfully, there’s a glimmer of hope: The Ontario Health Teams system, designed to modernize the province’s healthcare system and improve service quality across the board. We and local hospitals are on board to make as many improvements as possible to provincial healthcare efficiency, and this system is likely to help us get there! Today, let’s explore why it might represent a new, effective era in helping local residents get in and out of clinics faster without sacrificing service quality.

Working Together

Unlike the traditional siloed approach to Ontario’s healthcare system, the Teams system veers more towards improving the connections between community providers and primary caregiver organizations such as us. Transitioning critical functions of healthcare networks so that local communities can band together more efficiently is the key to successful change. 

A New Approach

Ontario Health Teams are intended to more effectively organize and deliver services in local communities. That means less red tape, fewer hoops for healthcare providers to jump through, and optimized service efficiency. Your local doctors and caregivers such as us at Qualicare will be permitted to operate as a single, much more effective team with fewer barriers getting in the way!

How it Works

Ontario Health Teams will have a complete record of your health history by consulting with archived data. They’ll be fully aware of all available healthcare services in your area, including those relevant to your condition if you have special needs. You’ll also benefit from 24/7 assistance with making use of this system. Plus, your referrals will always get to where they should be headed. You’ll even receive and be able to share health records, test results and more – talk about innovation! This takes a lot of work off the plate of folks like us and your family doctor, giving everyone the chance to help even more local residents. 

The Ontario Health Teams system, to us, is a breakthrough that is long overdue. We’re excited to see where it leads, and we bet you are too! Learn more today by reading up on how it all works, and let’s work together to make that change happen.
