In January 2012, the government introduced Ontario's Action Plan for Health Care. Our vision is to make Ontario the healthiest place in North America to grow up and grow old.
Ontario's health care system is moving away from a global funding system to a model that primarily follows the care that patients need and will be provided to them. A small portion will remain as global to cover facility level operating costs.
Under the new model, Ontario's hospitals, Community Care Access Centres and long-term care homes are compensated based on how many patients they look after, the services they deliver, the evidence-based quality of those services, and the specific needs of the broader population they serve.
