CKTB - NEWS - Doctor

The provincial government has approved a Niagara Health Care Team.

Five new Ontario Health Teams were announced today, including Niagara's.

The teams are meant to help coordinate health care providers to work as one unified team.

By doing so, officials hope to make transitions from hospitals to home care providers easier by relying on one patient record and one care plan.

Patients and families will also have access to 24/7 navigation and care coordination services.
