Integrated Care Solutions for Ontario Health Teams
Janet Davidson, Chair of CIHI’s Board of Directors
Creating purposeful partnerships with integrated community teams, is an effective way to collaboratively co-design models of care which support seamless patient transitions while reducing administrative burden and hospital congestion unique to your site. Alignment of vision and goals allows hospitals and integrated community teams to rapidly respond to changing needs and new opportunities in the healthcare space.
Through community partnerships, we will share examples of unique programs of care which support bundled funding models, frail elderly patients who are at risk of becoming ALC and ALC transitional rehab models. Performance metrics show significantly reduced hospital length of stay, reduced hospital readmission and reduced unnecessary emergency department visits but most importantly show more positive patient experience and outcomes.

Ways & Means | Health Links
Ministries report. Patients reflect. Providers enlighten. Experts analyse.

Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care tells us that 5% of patients account for 2/3 of healthcare costs. These are most often patients with multiple, complex conditions. When the hospital, the family doctor, the long-term care home, community organizations and others work as a team, the patient receives better, more coordinated care. Providers will design a care plan for each patient and work together with patients and their families to ensure they receive the care they need. For the patient it means they will :
- Have an individualized, coordinated plan
- Have care providers who ensure the plan is being followed
- Have support to ensure they are taking the right medications
- Have a care provider they can call who knows them, is familiar with their situation and can help.

“If you have a single child with a rare condition, you’re powerless to understand the cause,” says Dr. Kim Boycott, a geneticist and senior scientist at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario in Ottawa. “But once you have a second or a third to compare, that gives us a chance for a match, for an answer." – André Picard, The Globe and Mail
