Health System Transformation
The government of Ontario has committed to undertake structural and systems health reform as specified in Bill 74: The People’s Health Care Act, 2019. The introduction of OHTs provides an opportunity for Indigenous health systems transformation.
The IPHCC and its members offer significant value to the health systems transformation process by exemplifying a wholistic model of care that is patient-centred and reflects the patient, family, caregiver and community in the co-design, delivery and evaluation of services. IPHCC members are experienced managing comorbidities and integrating care to enhance health and wellbeing and prevent more costly services.
Health systems transformation is a process whereby IPHCC members, along with Indigenous and mainstream partners and alliances:
- Analyze, adapt, strengthen and grow Indigenous health programs and services; and,
- Ensure the Ontario health care system embeds the IPHCC’s Model of Wholistic Health and Wellbeing.
The aim is to provide equitable health and wellness services for FNIM peoples, and to address gaps in Indigenous health outcomes.
Health systems transformation is the goal of all the activities that occur within the IPHCC OHT Provincial Framework. All activities will be Indigenous-led (self-determined), culturally safe, wholistic, and collaborative in order to lead to better health outcomes for Indigenous peoples in Ontario.
The IPHCC recognizes and respects that federal health systems transformation processes are ongoing in a number of our members’ communities and align our efforts where possible.
