Population-health management – An overview of core concepts, principles and RISE supports for OHTs

Jan 21, 2021 12:00 PM - Jan 21, 2021 1:00 PM

To help OHTs implement a population-health management (PHM) approach, RISE is hosting a series of webinars.  The learning objectives of this first webinar are to help OHTs:

  • develop awareness of RISE’s population-health management supports for OHTs (including an introduction to PHM coaching)
  • understand the steps required to implement a population-health  management approach cultivate shared learnings by hearing from a peer OHT on their application of population-health management

This session helps support OHTs in achieving the following OHT TPA milestones:

  • Re-designing care for patients in your priority population(s)
  • Helping every patient in your priority population(s) experience coordinated transitions between providers

For cohort 1, this webinar will also provide a foundation for collaborative and coaching sessions which will follow (starting in January). For cohort 2, this webinar will provide an overview of population-health management approaches and visibility to upcoming supports.

Digital Health/eServices for OHTs

Jan 28, 2021 12:00 PM - Jan 28, 2021 1:00 PM 

This webinar is targeted to all OHTs and will provide a brief update on the Digital First for Health strategy and an overview of the provincial eServices program. The Digital First for Health Strategy was announced in November 2019. The COVID-19 pandemic significantly accelerated the adoption of virtual care by providers and has expanded digital access for patients which provide greater access to health care services and secure digital access to COVID-19 test results. Digital approaches to health care have enabled the province to be better positioned to respond to the flu season and second wave of COVID-19 outbreaks.

In April 2020, the provincial eServices program began development by bringing together eReferral and eConsult, two existing programs that have a demonstrated track record of success and would benefit clinicians by being integrated as part of the same workflow.  Other types of eServices are planned to be incorporated in the future.  The program is focused on integrating digital tools with the goal of reducing fragmentation in the current landscape and accelerating uptake and expansion across the province.  As part of this goal, the program will support local communities of practice including Ontario Health Teams (OHTs).  eServices can help OHTs support priority populations by enabling seamless and efficient electronic access to services and advice.

By the end of the webinar, participants will gain an understanding of the digital supports available and be able to describe how they can leverage eConsult and eReferral to support care of their OHT priority patient populations.
