To compensate physicians at the sessional rate for participation in time-limited, project-based, system redesign work within a health authority or community with health authority involvement. The focus of the work is to be on changes to acute and community-based health initiatives or programs within a health authority or as the health authority component of a provincial or inter-health authority project.
Sizing it Up
Physicians play an important role in influencing, developing and implementing redesign plans, therefore SSC funding is allocated to compensate specialists asked to participate in health system redesign initiatives led by the health authorities. Health System Redesign is a joint initiative of the Specialist Services Committee, Shared Care Committee, and General Practice Services Committees (collectively the Joint Clinical Committees).
Things to Know
Funding is intended for time-limited system redesign projects and broad scale physician engagement to assist health authorities to receive physician input and engagement in acute and community-based system redesign activities and projects. Funding is not intended for ongoing program administration, committee work, or staff positions, or for clinical compensation. Physicians are already responsible and compensated for hospital administrative duties. Please note: Depending on contract terms of time and /or deliverables, a physician on service contract may be eligible. Alternatively-paid physicians may be eligible for funding should the services fall outside the scope of the contract in hours and deliverables.
$320,000 of sessional funding is available within each health authority
