AFHTO 2019 Conference on September 19 & 20

Thu, September 19, 2019 - Fri, September 20, 2019
Westin Harbour Castle, One Harbour Square, Toronto, ON


Health System Integration Built on the Foundation of Team-Based Primary Health Care

Tree with many roots

Change can come fast and furious, and Ontario’s healthcare system is no exception. With legislation introduced in February, ‘upheaval’ could be considered an understatement. But the fundamentals remain- no matter the structure surrounding them, patients need care. And primary health care teams need to position themselves to provide this care in the best way possible.

‘Integration’ may be the word of the day, but primary care teams already embody it. Interprofessional comprehensive care creates a space, a patient medical home, and evidence shows this home is the best foundation for a high-performing health system. With this, we can truly say we’re providing patient-centred care.
