The purpose of this event is to showcase innovative projects and initiatives in home and community care and facilitate opportunities for knowledge sharing around care models, technology platforms and data sharing in the home and community care sector.
This is an opportunity to bring together those working in the home and community care sector, community support sector, managers, clinicians, researchers and policymakers in Toronto. The forum will showcase innovations in the community and engage in dialogue regarding the role of community care in the future of Ontario’s health system, with a particular focus on urban Toronto
Submissions for all projects are welcome, but proposals that advance areas deemed most important for improvement through the eyes of patients and caregivers will be favoured. Specifically, we consider these to be innovations that advance integrated care, have a high level of collaboration, align to the Ontario Health Team vision, and address equity.
Innovations that have been scaled/spread beyond the initial model development will be of interest, as well as those that can share how others can leverage the innovation for advancement or for spread and scale across Ontario.
All stakeholders are invited to submit brief proposals as per the details below. Authors of accepted proposals will be invited to give a 10 minute presentation profiling their innovation, and will be asked to outline its potential to spread in Toronto or beyond.
The format for the day will be focused on short presentations, followed by discussion. The proposals selected will aim to cover a variety of projects around current care models and technology in the home and community care sector, and particularly those involving collaboration across sectors.
