Home Care Ontario | Dec 07, 2016
Home Care Ontario commends the government on the passage of Bill 41, The Patients First Act, 2016 which has the overarching goal of creating a further improved and integrated provincial home care system.
This legislation is a major milestone enabling transformative change in the provincial home and community care system, notably dissolving CCACs and shifting oversight for the publicly funded program to the LHINs. Ultimately, patients and their families will benefit as more service is channeled to support care at home.
Home Care Ontario members welcome the opportunity to work directly with the LHINs to streamline service delivery processes and integrate planning to direct more funding to front line home care within the system.
