Findings like these surely took in depth study and must have cost us plenty.
What do we get for that sort of money?
And despite having full time consultants on staff, $461,446 was spent in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2011 on outside consultants.
The driving force behind service delivery will be serving the needs of the patient. How novel? The thought that patient needs, rather than what works best for bureaucracy should take priority needed a consultant to figure out?
Another study discovers the obvious
We'll likely never know. As with past studies, the LHIN keeps specific spending details under wraps. Unlike municipal councils there's no such thing as a publicly recorded bylaw passed when hiring a consultant and spending taxpayer dollars.
Health care, we are continually told, including in this study, is a major expense for the provincial budget nearing the 50 per cent mark.
The various health services in the region should work better together. More community based care is needed.
Health costs are high in the region compared to provincial averages, and many small communities lack the basics in health services. Again, who knew?
Dubbed, A Blue Print for a Better Health Care Future in Northwestern Ontario, the report, compiled by consultants PriceWaterhouseCoopers, lays out a plan for better coordination of health service delivery across the northwest region organized on local, district and regional levels.
Three years ago, then executive director Gwen Dubois Wing's pay was in the spotlight. It had doubled when she moved from the former Northwestern Ontario District Health Council to the North West LHIN, performing essentially the same job at $229,400 in 2006 as she done for $115,300 in 2004. By 2008 her pay was $288,603.
The North West LHIN is no exception. Based in Thunder Bay, and responsible for the entire region, the LHIN has grown Nike Shoes For Men Casual 2018
Last week the North West LHIN released its latest missive this one a 10 year plan on how to improve health delivery in the region.
Senior executives, including four designated as consultants, were paid a combined $1.056 million last year, including $248,000 for Kokocinski and $175,000 and $173,000 for two senior directors.
The number of staff on the province's Salary Disclosure list also blossomed, going from an initial three people, to nine by 2010, including four full time consultants. That Nike Sneakerboots was the year the LHIN had two executive directors, with Dubois Wing leaving in February, but nonetheless earning the equivalent of a full year's pay, $276,823; and Laura Kokocinski, her replacement, earning $211,791.
Designed to better coordinate and direct health care services and funding than the district health councils they replaced, the LHINs have been accused of being a costly group of paper pushers, more a hindrance than a help in delivering improved health services.
That's not the only revelation in the plan. The Northwest region "exhibits the characteristics of a fragmented health system" headed the list of the consultants' findings. Who knew?
to two dozen these days, and its cost has more than doubled, to nearly $5 million in fiscal 2010 2011 according to the government's public accounts. High pay is also hallmark of the LHINs, and the North West LHIN has taken its share of flack over that.
If the province really wants to make better use of its health dollars, my suggestion would be to spend more of it on doctors, nurses, beds and bandages, and less on pushing paper.
