Improving Quality of Care for Mental Health Patients through Funding Methodologies
October 11 @ 8:00 am - October 12 @ 5:00 pm
The Ontario Hospital Association in partnership with Patient Classification Systems International is pleased to bring you this program focused on models of care, data requirements and funding methodologies needed to help improve the quality of care for mental health patients.
In 2012, as part of Ontario’s Action Plan for Health Care, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (Ministry) implemented Health System Funding Reform (HSFR). The initial goal of this initiative was to drive a more sustainable health system based on quality. After six years, funding reform has produced many changes across Ontario hospitals including significant volume increases and overall reductions in costs per weighted case. However, the inclusion of case-mix adjusted inpatient mental health activity in HSFR or patient-based funding continues to be a challenge.
What are the models of care, data requirements and funding methodologies needed to help improve the quality of care for mental health patients? Join this 1.5 day program where top thought leaders from Germany, Australia, England, the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), the Ministry and Ontario hospitals will come together to articulate a vision for the development of a mental health classification system for Ontario.
The program is designed to facilitate a robust conversation about the data requirements and funding methodologies required to support new models of care in mental health.
