The Healthy Ontario Collaborative partners work with health care providers and local, regional, state and federal agencies to attract and retain a diversity of affordable, quality healthcare facilities and providers to serve the entire community.
A person’s ability to access health care services has a dramatic effect on every aspect of one’s life. One of the primary factors is the high cost of medical insurance, which makes quality health care unavailable to many people. A lack of medical services in some areas and a nationwide shortage of Primary Care Providers negatively affect people’s ability to access health care services. These barriers are often compounded by other social determinants, such as age, gender, ethnicity, and income. Concerted efforts to improve access can result in improved healthcare and prevention of serious long-term disease for all residents.
The Healthy Ontario Initiative’s Health Care Access & Utilization goals and objectives are:
Goal 2: Diverse, affordable, quality healthcare providers and services.
Objective 2.1: Bring affordable, quality health care to Ontario
Objective 2.2: Attract and retain quality health care agencies
Objective 2.3: Connect the community to resources through outreach and collaborative partnerships
