“Success Achieved Toward Better Health, Care, Teams & Value”

Success has been the hallmark of the past year for Prairie North Health Region toward achieving its enduring goals of Better Health, Better Care, Better Teams, and Better Value.

A detailed look at these successes plus a review of the Region's strategies, targets, actions, challenges, and results is available in Prairie North Regional Health Authority's (PNRHA's) 2012-13 Annual Report, which also contains the Region's audited financial statements. The report has been released today following tabling of the document with the Saskatchewan Legislature.

“In keeping with our commitment to accountability and transparency, we are pleased to provide this report to the residents of Prairie North and the general public,” said Bonnie O'Grady, PNRHA Chairperson. “We are proud of the strides made over the past year toward improving patient care and safety throughout Prairie North.”

O'Grady added, “Our dedicated team of health professionals in all departments, facilities, communities, and capacities deserves the credit for this success, and we look forward to maintaining that momentum through the year ahead.”

The Region has improved access to Primary Health Care (Better Health) with opening of the new Primary Health Centre in Meadow Lake and foundational work toward developing a Primary Health Care Innovation Site in Lloydminster.

Better Care has been achieved by Prairie North through the Saskatchewan Surgical Initiative (SkSI) and a focus on patient and staff safety. PNHR met and exceeded its SkSI targets of performing over 6,000 surgeries in 2012-13 and reducing surgical wait times to no more than six months. Improved medication management in the Region's hospitals, long-term care homes, and home care has also resulted in Better Care and safety for patients.

Implementation of the Saskatchewan Healthcare Management System (SHMS) including Lean management approaches and the new Hoshin Kanri strategic planning approach is leading to Better Teams and Better Value. SHMS quality improvement events involve leaders, physicians, and frontline staff making quality and safety improvements to their work to benefit patients. Physicians are becoming increasingly involved in quality improvement work within the Health Region, and frontline managers are benefiting from the focus on greater education and management support.

In terms of Better Value, Prairie North has achieved savings through its participation in the provincial Shared Services initiative. The Region also ended the 2012-13 fiscal year with a surplus of slightly more than $840,000.
