The new PPO Intranet page went live on March 20th. As mentioned in previous correspondence, there have only been a few minor changes and additions to the site. Please continue to contact me if you have any problems and or concerns with the site and I will attempt to address them myself, or forward to the appropriate person(s).

The purpose is to ensure that all areas are using the most updated versions of the PPOs that are approved in the Regina area. These, and all PPOs, may be found on the RQHR intranet PPO site: http://rqhwebdev/xPpo/default.aspx

Please feel free to contact myself if you are unable to find a PPO or are looking for guidance in developing a PPO.
