  LHIN Touch with Kim Baker


Patients FirstKim Baker

On June 2 of this year, the Government of Ontario signaled the continued evolution of the health care system with the introduction of Bill 210, the Patients First Act. The proposals in the Act recognize that a positive patient experience relies upon stronger linkages and collaboration between Health Service Providers and primary care to support patients’ changing needs as they move across the system.

The Central LHIN’s Integrated Health Service Plan (IHSP) for 2016-2019 reinforces this commitment to improve the patient experience and to put patients first. Our IHSP outlines strategies to achieve better coordination of care for patients by strengthening the connections between primary care, acute care, community- based care and other providers, while including the perspective of Public Health Units.

Listening to – and learning from – the patient voice is one of the best ways we can continue to improve care. ‘Listen to the Patient Voice’ is one of the Central LHIN’s Core Values. We demonstrate this Value by tapping into the powerful insights of patients, caregivers and direct care providers through a number of work groups and engagement opportunities. Each contribution is valued and helpful – for example, what we gain from the insights of Central LHIN residents who participate on our Citizens’ Health Advisory Panel (CHAP). Members represent various communities across the region and provide advice and feedback to inform our system planning.

Most participants have had significant experience with the health care system, and help us better understand what we are doing well – and areas where we need to do better. At our June meeting, we welcomed 10 new members to CHAP and I’d like to express our appreciation to all of our  CHAP members for their ongoing advice and guidance.

We also learn from the findings of engagements that are led directly by our Health Service Providers to learn more from the patients and families they serve.

earning from health care professionals


The Health Professions Advisory Committee (HPAC) of the Central LHIN is comprised of care providers who represent a wide range of health professionals such as nurses, social workers and doctors. Their insights are also helpful as we focus on service delivery at the system level.

Through the leadership of HPAC Chair Dr. George Arnold, the group has recently examined the essential role of community and outpatient clinics located in

hospitals and in community settings. These clinics are often established to respond to identified community needs. They also improve flow and access in hospital settings by assisting patients in recovery and keeping them well and out of the hospital.

Community and outpatient clinics support patients to receive essential care closer to home. Many offer a wide range of prevention and treatment options – education, counselling, diagnosis, physiotherapy and rehabilitation to mention just a few. In this way, the services of community and outpatient clinics contribute to system- wide effectiveness, such as reducing Emergency Department visits and readmissions to hospital.

HPAC has recently developed Guiding Principles intended to support the patient- centred focus of clinics, and to reinforce:

  • The significant contribution made by community and outpatient clinics to the overall patient experience by strengthening home and community care and delivering services in a patient-centred manner
  • The importance of patient choice in selecting and accessing a clinic location, regardless of where patients live
  • The high-quality and professionalism of the health service providers who deliver care, respect patient choice and navigate patients to the right service so they can access the help that they need
  • The value of applying a system-wide focus when planning for new clinics, programs and services

These insights are important for us to keep in mind as we continue to strengthen the health care system together, and to acknowledge the contributions of many partners and providers. We appreciate the work of all of our stakeholders who give of their time and insights to shape better health care across our communities.



A safe, healthy summer


Central LHIN will continue to engage with key stakeholders as we evolve our health care system together, and we’ll keep you up-to-date on new developments and initiatives in our health care system.

In the meantime, my very best wishes for a safe and healthy summer!

  Ontario Health Profiles project provides high-quality online data for Health Service Providers



Health Service Providers can now access an analysis of key population health and health indicator data within the Central LHIN through the Ontario Health Profiles Project. The data is available through an open access website at
ontariohealthprofiles.ca. This project was developed by the Centre for Research on Inner City Health at St. Michael’s Hospital, in partnership with Toronto Public Health, the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences (ICES) and Toronto Central LHIN.


Central LHIN’s decision to join the collaborative was driven by a realization that many of our Health Service Providers have limited decision support resources. There can be duplication of effort across the system in collecting and analyzing data, and sometimes different methodologies make it difficult to compare information across agencies and neighbourhoods.


The Ontario Health Profiles project solves these issues by providing a consistent and easily available repository and analysis of high-quality, validated health data for the Central LHIN that can be accessed by all of our Health Service Providers.


Stevenson Memorial Hospital is funded by the Central LHIN as the lead agency for expanding this project and website to include the Central LHIN geography. The website is simple to navigate, but if you have questions please contact Xun Wang, Senior Analyst/Decision Support at the Central LHIN, 905-948-1872 ext. 232 or xun.wang@lhins.on.ca. A webinar is being planned for some time in the near future. 



  Central LHIN Board of Directors Update



Board members play an invaluable role at the Central LHIN by providing strategic oversight and leadership. Recently, we said goodbye to two of our Board members as they completed their term of service - John Rogers, who completed his service on March 9, and Judy Cameron, who completed her term on June 1. Both provided valuable contributions and insights that have advanced the Central LHIN’s vision and strategic directions.

With a background in law and municipal government, John Rogers was appointed to the Board in March 2010. John was Board Secretary and a member of the Central LHIN Community Nominations Committee.  His experience at the municipal level provided a solid understanding of local issues and opportunities, and his attention to detail is much appreciated.

Judy Cameron's extensive career experience in the financial and communications sectors was a great asset to the Board during her tenure, which began in June

2011.  Judy’s dedicated service and  valuable insights while on the Board were greatly valued qualities.

We are also delighted to welcome new Board member David Lai, whose three-year tenure began in March. Currently serving as a Director of Technology Infrastructure and Operations in the legal sector, David holds designations as: Chartered Professional Accountant, Certified Management Accountant and Master of Business Administration. David also brings health care administration experience to his role on the Board from his service on the Boards of Mackenzie Health and the Central Community Care Access Centre. The Central LHIN is pleased to have David’s local perspective and professional expertise on the Board of Directors.

  Sharing successful ideas at InnovationEX


Many thanks to Carla Peacock, Senior Communications Specialist, Markham Stouffville Hospital, for providing this story.

The Joint Centres for Transformative Healthcare Innovation (Joint Centres) were proud to host their third annual InnovationEX event at Markham Stouffville Hospital (MSH) on April 7, 2016. This event showcased 12 new innovations from the six member hospitals of the Joint Centres: Mackenzie Health, MSH, the Toronto East Health Network, North York General Hospital, Southlake Regional Health Centre, and St. Joseph’s Health Centre Toronto.  The Joint Centres is a partnership between these hospitals to share innovations focused on improving quality and value in health care.

InnovationEX speakers included the Honourable Jane Philpott, Federal Minister of Health, and the Honourable Helena Jaczek, Ontario’s Minister of Community and Social Services, as well as Dr. Joshua Tepper, President and CEO, Health Quality Ontario. Discussion focused on the role of innovation in health care improvement, and the important role that frontline staff play in discovering and implementing new ideas.

The two new MSH innovations have a special human interest connection. NICU Connect uses technology during morning rounds to engage parents of children who are in hospital so that they can participate even when they can’t be at the hospital in person. This gives parents another opportunity to have an active role in their child’s care plan. Research highlights from another project - the Pet Impact - shows how health care professionals can learn more about their patients’ health and ultimately provide better care, by asking them about their pets. To read about the other projects that were on display, visit the InnovationEX website.

InnovationEX was also an opportunity for a special announcement by the Council of Academic Hospitals of Ontario (CAHO) on a new Adopting Research to Improve Care (ARTIC) Program with North York General Hospital to implement their Choosing Wisely project to the Joint Centres’ Hospitals.

Within the Central LHIN there are many unsung heroes who give freely of their time and their talents to improve the patient experience through volunteering with our Health Service Providers and partners. This story highlights three volunteers who work at CHATS and were recognized during National Volunteer Week in April.



The Ontario Ministry of Citizenship, Immigration, and International Trade celebrated more than 11,000 volunteers through its annual Volunteer Service Award ceremonies this past April. Three of the outstanding CHATS volunteers were recognized by the province for their dedicated service to seniors. Each of these amazing volunteers were nominated by CHATS’ Adult Day Program staff in Aurora for their dedication and contributions as volunteers to the program:


L
inda Irwin has volunteered at CHATS for seven years. She has a great rapport with all of the clients in the Adult Day Program. She often helps staff facilitate programs and has been known to suggest new program ideas and adaptions to ensure that all clients can participate.

Ken Smith has volunteered at CHATS for over nine years. His bright and friendly personality have allowed him to build positive relationships with all of the clients. Ken has an extensive background in horticulture and has been a huge resource to the Adult Day Program in the maintenance and new learnings surrounding of the Therapeutic Garden.

The third award recipient, Laurie Todd, has been a volunteer for the past seven years. Laurie is known for her welcoming and sunny personality and is always ensuring that both staff and clients are supported throughout the day. She is often seen helping staff facilitate programs as well as organizing her own knitting program on Mondays for clients.

     
 
"Our sincere thanks to all the volunteers in our region who support patients and their
families across the Central LHIN, and make such a difference in their lives by
improving the patient care experience."

  Ontario providing subsidy to upgrade Central LHIN long-term care home



Associate Minister of Health and Long-Term Care Dipika Damerla – whose portfolio changed when she was recently appointed as Minister Responsible for Seniors Affairs – visited Bloomington Cove Care Community in the spring to announce new funding for facility upgrades for the Whitchurch-Stouffville long-term care home, one of Central LHIN's 96 Health Service Providers.

Bloomington Cove is one of several long-term care homes to receive a government investment to improve the quality of care for seniors. More than 30 resident spaces in the oldest part of the building will be upgraded as part of the province’s plan to improve the infrastructure of long-term care homes over the next nine years.

“I’m delighted it's started and we’re  well on our way,” said Janet Iwaszczenko, executive director at Bloomington Cove.  “Our residents are so deserving of a lovely 
home with all its conveniences.”

The upgrades will include creating a home-like environment in the dining area as well as additional space for rehab and physiotherapy, increased wheelchair access in bedrooms, bathrooms, showers and doorways, and more private workspaces for facility staff.

Bloomington Cove, a for-profit facility, is home to 112 residents and is the only licensed long-term care centre dedicated to dementia. “This is a very special long- term care home and I have a real appreciation of the superb care Bloomington Cove gives its residents,” said Associate Minister Damerla.

“This is welcome news for seniors who rely on long-term care as their ‘home’ when they are no longer able to live independently on their own,” Central Local Health Integration Network CEO Kim Baker said. “With these enhancements, our seniors will benefit from aesthetic improvements in the home as well as accessibility and program space enhancements.”

  Thank you to the 2014-2016 Citizens' Health Advisory Panel


Citizens' Health Advisory Panel

     
   New and outgoing CHAP members and Central LHIN staff at a celebration this past June.   
     

The Central LHIN team would like to take this opportunity to thank all the members of the 2014-2016 term of our Citizens' Health Advisory Panel (CHAP). We have sincerely appreciated your valuable advice and guidance as we have worked together to create a better local health care system for our communities.

CHAP members are important to the work of Central LHIN. As residents of our community, they share their experience and insights to help us achieve person-centred health care as we implemented our Integrated Health Service Plan (strategic directions) for the region. "Our Citizens' Health Advisory Panel is a key part of our engagement process, and we benefit from the diverse perspectives and collective wisdom of the group," says Barbara Jones, Senior Lead, Quality and Integration, and leader of CHAP. "We are so pleased to welcome a new group of CHAP members, and look forward to partnering with them on a variety of projects over the course of the next term of office."


We recently spoke with some of the outgoing members about their motivation to join CHAP. All members wanted to use their own personal experiences to make a difference in their communities and contribute to the future of their local health care system. For Ron, his experience as a kidney transplant recipient and health care volunteer gave him motivation to get involved: “I thought participating on CHAP would be another way to be able to ‘pay back’ my good fortunes by contributing to the health network  in my community,” he says. “I was right! It was a positive learning experience and allowed me to gain insight into the great work being done by the LHIN and health care workers  in our community.”

The outgoing members appreciated the opportunity provided by CHAP to actively participate in conversations and projects that were focused on improving care in our communities. “Being part of CHAP helped me to understand the complexities of the health care system and showed me that as citizens we can affect or influence change by providing a voice,” says Maurine.

The panel also allowed them to hear a variety of perspectives on the health care experience. “It was really interesting to hear different opinions while I with the CHAP group,” says Dominique. Ron further adds: “The diversity of the members of the CHAP team was a real eye-opener and I must say it greatly increased my understanding of the challenges faced by people within our community.”


"Engaging our communities is not only a legislated mandate of the Central LHIN, it is a core value because it helps us do our job better," says Barbara. "I'd like to extend our sincere thanks to Dominique Poremski, DJ McCready, Maurine Dyer and Ron Wadey and wish them all the very best in their future endeavours. As well, I want to warmly welcome our 10 new CHAP members who are just beginning a three-year term that will see us through our current IHSP and into the development of the next one."

  Innovation through Collaboration: The 2016 Chairman's Awards

The Central LHIN’s Chairman’s Awards are presented annually to individuals who participate in system-wide improvement projects within our geographic region and work together in teams to demonstrate Innovation through Collaboration.

For 2015/16, two health system improvement projects were presented with the Chairman’s Award for Innovation through Collaboration. Individuals who participated on the 24/7 Palliative Care Crisis Line project and the Ontario Telemedicine team  received the Chairman’s Award for Innovation through Collaboration on June 28, 2016 during the Central LHIN Board of Directors meeting. In total, 23 people were recognized from nine different organizations.

The 24/7 Palliative Care Crisis Line health service is the first of its kind in the province, and provides vital support for patients and their families for urgent palliative care issues associated with end-of-life support. Patients and families who call the crisis line have telephone access to a Registered Nurse 24/7 who will provide help and expertise, and if needed, can connect patients to other members of the health care team.

The Ontario Telemedicine team was recognized for their work to advance the Central LHIN telemedicine strategy in the 2015/16 fiscal year. Key projects the team accomplished included the adoption of telemedicine in the majority of Central LHIN long-term care homes, the implementation of telehomecare by Health Link area across Central LHIN, and the launch of telehomecare at LOFT Bradford House.

Telemedicine uses video conferencing technology to connect patients in long-term care homes and rural communities with their doctor for appointments - improving access to health care services and helping to save lives in critical care and emergency situations. The telehomecare program allows chronic disease patients to manage their own health at home by providing them with access to a nurse who uses telecommunications technology and coaching techniques to help them monitor their health status remotely.

The 23 recipients of the Chairman’s Award for Innovation through Collaboration represented organizations who provide care and/or partner with Central LHIN to serve the patients and families who live in our geography. Their outstanding work truly embodies the Central LHIN philosophy – Together, we’re better!
