The Oxford Ontario Health Team is a multi-organizational partnership that includes active participation from local healthcare providers, clinicians, patients, caregivers and the broader community. With varying areas of care and expertise, our goal is to work together to bring a coordinated, streamlined healthcare experience to the Oxford County Community.
In order to work towards this goal, we have created the following working groups:
Leadership and Strategy Council (The Council)
The Council sets priorities, drives improvements, and develops strategies to ensure all partners are in alignment. They coordinate efforts across teams, focus on health outcomes, and consider the experiences and values of patients, caregivers, and providers.
The Collaboration Committee works together to ensure the work plans for each action team aligns with the Oxford Ontario Health Team (Oxford OHT) strategic priorities. They understand the work being executed across the Oxford OHT and act as a forum for discussion, planning, and problem-solving. The Collaboration Committee will ensure that the Oxford OHT evolves in alignment with the ministry OHT building blocks in a way that supports with the local community.
Patient Engagement Action Team
The Patient Engagement Action Team is responsible for bringing the perspectives of patients, families, and caregivers into the co-design of the Oxford OHT. This group has developed a Patient Engagement Framework that will guide the various ways that patient input will drive navigation, quality improvement, patient relations, patient experience, and leadership roles (including governance) in the Oxford OHT. Comprised of community members from across our region, the group provides a variety of perspectives from patients and caregivers on their experience within the healthcare system.
Communications and Community Engagement
This team is responsible for identifying and managing communication efforts on behalf of the Oxford OHT membership and public. They share information about current projects and collaborations across their respective networks and look for opportunities to support events and engagements across organizations.
Digital Health and Privacy
The Digital Health and Privacy team provides up to date information and advice to the Oxford OHT membership on Digital Health priorities across the province/region. They recommend foundational steps to prepare Oxford OHT partners for digital health technology, including privacy actions to improve patient and provider experience.
Performance Measurement and Quality
This team reviews and analyzes data trends to inform planning locally in Oxford County. They support project execution by providing advice on data capture, definitions, and trends, and ultimately aim to improve data quality across Oxford County.
Priority Population Working Groups
The Oxford OHT has three priority population working groups that aim to improve the healthcare experience specifically for those represented by our target populations:
- Attributed people at risk of hospitalization due to Chronic Disease
- Attributed people that would benefit from Palliative Care
- Attributed people experiencing challenges related to Mental Health and Addictions
We value our community’s feedback about their experience within the healthcare system. To provide anonymous feedback to help inform future priorities and design tests of change, please click here.
