Advocating for Rehab
The GTA Rehab Network is a recognized and influential voice for rehabilitation as an essential component of high quality, connected care. The Network advocates for the role of rehabilitation in improving patient outcomes and experience, reducing costs and helping patients flow through the system.
Our work in this area includes the following:
- Making a case for rehabilitation: The Network is reaching out to Ontario Health Teams to help them integrate rehabilitation into their services. Our Guide for Ontario Health Team Applicants provides an overview of how rehabilitation contributes to achieving the quadruple aim in a variety of settings, including primary care, acute care hospitals and home and community care.
- Showcasing rehab as a system solution: Our annual Best Practices Day highlights leading practices and innovations in rehabilitative care that contribute to high quality and efficient care.
- Ensuring bundled care pricing reflects best practice care: The Network is using best practice models of care and shared data from members to advocate for bundled care pricing that accurately reflects the resources required to provide best practice rehabilitative care.
