Leadership and Clinical Payments Funding Gap - July 2017

26-Jul-2017

Working with Steve Chard, Acting Director of Practitioner Staff Affairs, we have developed a series of strategies to address the gaps in funding for leadership and clinical services provided by RQHR physicians.

We have had joint meetings with Saskatoon and the Ministry on leadership payments.  We have a special meeting planned with the Ministry on emergency department payments and have made progress in our discussions on a payment for services in our accountable care units.

We also met with the physician members of the Transition Team to discuss payments for leadership roles. 

Further discussions are planned with the Ministry and our Radiologists in respect of the payment system for in-patient radiology services.

Also, progress has been made in regard to ACFP payments with contracts imminent in Dermatology and in Physiatry.
