Lessons from COVID-19: Leveraging Integrated Care During Ontario’s COVID-19 Response

Prior to the pandemic, 24 Ontario Health Teams (OHTs) were in the very early stages of implementation. Addressing the new context of COVID-19 and related emergent objectives will require revisiting OHTs plans for  moving towards an integrated approach. As the province takes stock of the initial months of the pandemic, OHTs and associated provincial supports have an opportunity to consider whether and how the framework set out for integrated care in the province and the principles of population health management can be used to navigate a way forward.
