Date: April 23, 2013 Author: Mantis System Categories: News 2013

We are pleased to share that the GTA Rehab Network has been asked by the 14 LHIN CEOs to provide secretariat support for the provincial Rehabilitative Care Alliance, which represents the next phase in the evolution of the work of the Rehab/CCC Expert Panel.

The Alliance is co-chaired by Donna Cripps, CEO of the Hamilton Niagara Haldimand Brant LHIN and Dr. Peter Nord, Vice President, Chief Medical Officer and Chief of Staff, Providence Healthcare, Toronto. The Alliance will report directly to the LHIN CEOs, recommending solutions to challenges that affect all regions of the province. Building on the work of the Expert Panel, the Alliance will recommend standardized definitions for work done in this important sector, with standardized measurements that work within and support the realities of new funding methodologies. The Alliance will be supported by a Rehab Lead from each LHIN, who will bring forward local challenges and who will also be able to effect changes within the LHIN through a network of key individuals.
