Recently, the Ontario Health Team (OHT) produced a Virtual Engagement Series in collaboration with Ontario Health (OH) and partners in the Central Program of Supports, for healthcare teams in Ontario to learn, ask questions, and share successes or challenges about areas of common interest.

  1. Positive patient satisfaction data overall;
  2. Decreases in calls and visits required;
