Implementation and challenges
The implementation of the program was initiated at a grassroots level, directly engaging clinics, frontline clinicians, and nurses. We continue to gain support to expand and scale these pathways to include multiple stakeholders.
The key stakeholders involved in this initiative include HCCSS (Home and Community Care Support Services), THP (Trillium Health Partners), Specialty Provider Organizations, and the Mississauga Ontario Health Team.
The work has been divided into two phases, with Phase 1 focusing on 2 separate home care clinics and Phase 2 targeting the remaining HCCSS clinics, along with the SCOPE program, LTC facilities, ERs, and Urgent Care clinics.
Operational and logistic adjustments have required the recruitment of a local Vascular Surgeon and the establishment of buy-in from local specialists, in addition to navigating the administrative challenges of deploying an innovative Value-Based Care solution.
