PHSA is working collaboratively with the Ministry of Health and regional and First Nations health authority partners to implement a new mandate with the shared goal of better serving patients with a more integrated system of care.
PHSA’s mandate is described in two documents. The Foundational Mandate
describes the multi-year, foundational elements and the 2018/19 Mandate letter
outlines the Ministry of Health's specific directions to PHSA for this fiscal year.
Overall, our mandate outlines PHSA’s province-wide responsibilities in four key areas:
- Provincial clinical policy
- Provincial clinical service delivery
- Provincial commercial services
- Provincial digital and information technology
We are assessing service lines, specifically those that cross multiple health authorities. To determine the feasibility of expanding these services and potential operational models, PHSA is in a consultation phase with regional and First Nations health authority partners. Assessments and consultations are intended to:
Collect and analyse data to inform the drivers for change and service enhancement.
Provide health authority leaders with the opportunity to share valuable input related to local and unique considerations
We anticipate that service delivery recommendations will be reviewed by the Ministry of Health in November 2018.
