About the OHT shared space

In partnership with Ontario Health, RISE has launched an online shared space for OHTs to exchange resources and lessons learned, participate in discussions, and collectively solve problems related to the implementation of the OHT model. The shared space hosts both targeted, time-limited collaboratives as well as communities of practice. 

RISE is supporting three collaboratives focused on using a population-health management approach to ‘move the needle’ on quadruple-aim metrics for three priority populations:

  • older adults and/or people with chronic conditions
  • people with mental health and addictions issues
  • people who could benefit from a palliative approach to care.

RISE and/or other health system partners are supporting four communities of practice that relate directly to two of the eight OHT building blocks and one for OHTs that have not yet been approved:

  • patient, family and caregiver engagement (i.e., building block #3)
  • digital health and information sharing (i.e., building block #5)
  • performance improvement and evaluation (i.e., building block #8)
  • OHTs that have not yet been approved.

A general discussion space has also been opened relating to the eight building blocks.

The OHT shared space can be accessed using this link.

RISE is exploring additional OHT communities of practice. If you would like to recommend particular areas of focus, please email us rise@mcmaster.ca.
