Algoma OHT
(AOHT)
Sault Ste Marie The Fellow will provide support to advance a standardized approach to performance measurement across the AOHT, as part of an effort to become a learning health system. To validate the approach, the Fellow will be tasked with working with one of two identified subpopulations:

  • Healthy Aging: Community-dwelling frail older adults and their caregivers
  • Chronic Disease Management: Higher users of hospital-based services with complex chronic conditions

As an evaluation expert supporting established teams, the Fellow will analyse newly collected data to segment the population, support prioritisation of community-based interventions, and facilitate performance measurement across organizational settings.

All Nations Health Partners
(ANHP)
Kenora All Nations Health Partners are requesting a Fellow to create a streamlined process to collect accurate localized information of the ANHP attributed population that will inform a specifically implemented process to enable a quality improvement framework. Data will be collected by following the path of the patient through the diverse and unique healthcare systems that our community members access (inter-provincial MB/ON, indigenous and non-indigenous primary care, non-insured medical services, provincial and federal, and inter-ministerial systems).

Brampton Etobicoke (BE) OHT Brampton, Bramalea, Malton,
Etobicoke, Woodbridge
The BE OHT is launching a population health management approach for the frail elderly population. You will have an unique opportunity to contribute to the BE OHT by:

  1. Developing, implementing and evaluating integrated care models for a chosen population segment within the frail elderly population, which includes rapid learning and improvement during implementation. The integrated care model should ensure the diverse population of the region is contemplated, measured and evaluated, including leveraging the OHT’s Diversity Framework.
  2. Creating and implementing an evaluation framework for current integrated care projects that can be adapted to future OHT projects.
