What ETHP Means For You
Ontario Health Teams (OHT) are a new model of care announced by the Ontario Ministry of Health in 2019. The goal of OHTs is to better connect care providers in local communities. This makes it easier for clients and families to find and get care close to home.
East Toronto Health Partners (ETHP) was one of the first 24 OHTs announced by the province in December 2019. Through this model, community, primary care, home care, hospital and social services organizations in East Toronto work together as a team to wrap care around you so you can more easily get the services and supports you need.
This approach improves access to services, reduces delays and duplication in care, and addresses gaps in service delivery. The goal is to create a system that you do not need to navigate on your own and where you do not need to share your story multiple times with different care providers.
The result is improved quality of care and better health outcomes for clients, families and caregivers in East Toronto.
