New health service proposal reviewed

More efficient use of sub-acute services for out-patients is part of a new plan for hospitals and health service providers in Eastern Ontario. The Champlain Local Health Integration Network board (LHIN) has approved a proposal for a new long-termplan for making the best use of sub-acute services within the Champlain LHIN region.The LHIN oversees fundingmanagement and other planning for the Champlain health services region, which includes Ottawa, the Five Counties and parts of Renfrew and Leeds-Grenville counties. LHIN administration has determined

patients, caregivers, and health service providers. It recommends early- identification and prevention strategies to help patients avoid future hospital stays resulting from relapse or new injuries or illness during their sub-acute care period. Monitoring patient care during hospital stays to prevent any hospital-acquired disabilities prior to release is also recommended. “Significant investments” from the LHIN in home-therapy support, ambulatory services, and other community based sub-acute health care services is also recommended along with redistribution The AMP shows what assets a municipality has, how well those assets are maintained, and helps support arguments for approval of an application for a specific provincial funding program. An AMP also shows the provincial government how responsible a municipality or county is in looking after its existing infrastructure and planning for future needs. “This document identifies what has been achieved,” the report introduction noted, “what is being done and what needs to be done to ensure core services provided to citizens, business, and institutions attain sustainability.”

there are more than 870 sub-acute care hospital beds in the Champlain LHIN region available for patients who have finished with their acute care treatment and may transfer over to rehabilitation or other types of inpatient or outpatient care. These types of services handle stroke survivors, patients with acquired brain injuries, amputees, and older patients who have become debilitated following an illness or injury and are in need of follow-up support care. The new plan was developed through the LHIN’s sub-acute capacity steering committee through consultation with

where possible of sub-acute bed space within the Champlain LHIN region. This redistribution would be based on demographics to try to reduce the amount of travel time and distance involved for patients in sub-acute care. The plan also proposes making the most efficient use of convalescent units in long-termcare homes. The plan recommends a $5.6 million investment for the Champlain LHIN’s sub- acute care services program for inpatient care. Most of themoneywould go towardsmore intensive rehabilitation services. Another $11.3 million investment is recommended for community-based services. The Champlain LHIN board approved the plan and asked LHIN staff and their partners in local health services facilities and centres to develop a detailed strategy for putting the plan to work as part of the LHIN’s overall strategy for improving patient care and support services throughout the region.

Counties assets report on the table The report’s introduction notes that these assets are all essential “to support its (UCPR) core services.”


The mayors of all of Prescott-Russell’s municipalitiesmay be on a summer break but that does not mean they do not have any “homework” to occupy themselves away from their municipal offices. One large report all themayors have to read over the month of July, before theymeet in L’Orignal early in August for counties council, is a 60-plus detailed report on all the assets of the United Counties of Prescott-Russell. The UCPR Asset Management Plan report outlines and describes the entire infrastructure which belongs to or is managed and maintained by the counties.

The report represents the past few years of research and prior studies and update briefings on counties infrastructure and service support facilities and properties. One of the aims of the report is to make sure that the counties has an up-to-date assessment and inventory of all its assets to meet themandatory provincial government guidelines set for municipalities dealing with asset management plans (AMP). These AMPs are now essential for municipalities when they apply for some forms of provincial support grants or special infrastructure projects funding.
