Family Health Teams Site Locations

Coordinate system: 4269 - "NAD83"

Abstract:

This data set provides address locations of Family Health Team Sites, as provided by the Association of Family Health Teams of Ontario (AFHTO). Family Health Team Sites make up the location(s) for a Family Health Team for a given area, or community.

Family Health Teams ensure that people receive the care they need in their communities, as each team is set-up based on local health and community needs. Family Health Teams provide a core set of comprehensive primary health care services to their patients. Patients can be enrolled either to an individual family physician or to groups of physicians. They focus on chronic disease management, disease prevention and health promotion, and work with other health care organizations, such as public health units and Community Care Access Centres.
