PCs unveil 'super agency' for healthcare in Ontario

Ford government introducing legislation to form super agency called 'Ontario Health' Ford government to create new super agency, Ontario Health

Describing the system as "fragmented", she promised the government would make it easier for patients to move between health care providers and have access to their records.

Ontario Deputy Premier and Health Minister Christine Elliott during the throne speech at Queen's Park in Toronto on July 12, 2018.

"The value of our health care system is locked in silos", Elliott said.

"We are leaving Ontarians behind because our system is disconnected", she said. Nothing's going to change that way. We want to make sure that we can amplify those home care numbers. Elliott stressed some of the administrative work will still be needed in the new teams. The teams will not create another layer of bureaucracy, she said. "This is not a financial exercise".

A news release states, "Ontario now has a large network of provincial and regional agencies, clinical oversight bodies and 1,800 health service provider organizations". "[The government] has a plan they believe will improve the integration of services".

Senior health bureaucrats said some health teams could be specifically aimed at certain pervasive illnesses, such as diabetes, or mental health, tasked with co-ordinating all the doctors and healthcare professionals with expertise in that illness with all sufferers of that illness in the whole province.

Hospital overcrowding has become the "new normal", Home Care Ontario says, with 15 per cent of Ontario hospital beds now occupied by patients who no longer require a hospital stay but have nowhere else to go for their care.

Singh also said she hopes the government has revised its plan.

The Ontario government announced some big changes to healthcare today.

German rescuers hailed as heroes after freeing fat rat from manhole
A little girl was devastated when she found a chubby rat stuck in a sewer grate in the German town of Bensheim. She was released straight back into the sewer - but not before some close-up photographs were snapped.

Vicki McKenna, the president of the Ontario Nurses' Association (ONA, ) said the government's plan makes this a "destabilizing time" for nurses, especially for the almost 4,000 nurses that her agency represents who work for the LHINs. You will be able to book appointments online and have access to your own health-care record.

"That lack of communication and coordination can turn into large cracks in the system".

Expansion of the current exceptional clinical guidance and quality improvement practices in existing agencies into other critical areas of the health care sector. Medical officer of health Dr. Piotr Oglaza said he had heard noting - in Tuesday's announcement or otherwise - about changes to Hastings Prince Edward Public Health and other units.

There was no word on job cuts, but talk is of "understanding the assets in the system" and making decisions that best serve the agency, including on the level of staffing it needs. They're the ones referring patients to wait-listed home care or mental health service providers and they know where the issues are and have ideas about ways to fix them, Young said.

A request for comment from the LHIN on the province's announcement was redirected to the ministry. The report, which assesses QHC's operations, has not been finalized and has yet to be made public.

Roughly 64 per cent of the funding is earmarked for hospital operations throughout the LHIN. Belgium's rate was five, while Japan had the highest rate of 7.8.

Ontario Health Teams will be established in phases across the province. "But it's saying that this is untenable", he said after the board meeting in Picton. However, she noted that home care is now delivered by both public and private agencies.

Heightened "collaboration" between acute care, primary care and home care, is essential, Home Care Ontario contends. Much of the care that's now occurring in the hospital should be happening in the community. That is an average of 3,000 people, every day, in hospital beds because they can not get the professional services that would allow them to recover at home.

"It's all tied to the patient", one of the officials said.
