In the last issue of CorHealth Quarterly, we were excited
to introduce CorHealth Ontario’s new Advisory and Task Group Structure and the three Leadership Councils. Since then, the Councils
have successfully met in the fall with great interest and engagement.
During the inaugural meetings the following key themes emerged:
Rehabilitation Focus - there needs to be strong support for rehabilitation focus to maximize patient outcomes across
CorHealth Ontario’s clinical domains
Opportunity for Integration - integration opportunities exist across key areas of continuum, including risk factor reduction
and secondary prevention programs
Continuum Lens & Patient Focus - are perspectives that should drive CorHealth Ontario’s work going forward
Future Opportunities - the Councils will help identify system opportunities to address beyond 2019
During the cardiac Leadership Council meeting, Chair, Dr. Madhu Natarajan shared, “the three committees (cardiac, stroke, vascular)
can be thought of as a Venn diagram. They are each unique in size and perspective, but do overlap in many ways. We hope to take advantage
of these overlaps and share knowledge to improve patient care.”
The Councils meet three times per year and will continue to provide strategic advice and input to support the achievement of a high quality,
integrated, system of cardiac, stroke and vascular care. As updates become available, we will continue to share them with you.
We would like to thank everyone who is part of this collaborative effort in achieving our mandate to improve the continuum of cardiac, stroke
and vascular care for all Ontarians. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
