The reimagination of sustainable integrated care in Ontario, Canada

To encourage clinical and financial efficiency, the Canadian province of Ontario initiated an integrated care program – Integrated Funding Models (IFMs) that required collaboration and coordination across acute and post-acute care sectors. This research shows how program implementers went beyond policy-makers’ original designs, to make integrated care sustainable for chronic diseases.

Highlights

  • Integrating care across sectors was challenging for chronic disease programs.
  • Participants adopted creative sustainability strategies, unique to each program.
  • Their designs transcended policymakers’ original conceptualization of integration.
  • Fostering accountability and patient-centred care was key to sustainability for program stakeholders.
  • Differences in policymakers’ and program implementers’ understanding of integrated care are indicated.

Interprofessional primary care (IPPC) teams are promoted as an alternative to single profession physician practices in primary care with focus on preventive care and chronic disease management. Characteristics of teams can have an impact on their performance.

However, the empirical evidence of the implications of IPPC team design on various aspects of care processes or health outcomes is specific to particular contexts, but a general understanding of optimal team design is not available.
