Collaborative Working Group - Proposal to the Joint Standing Committee

Collaborative Working Group (CWG) – In the summer of 2014, the Joint Standing Committee on Rural Issues invited a proposal from Island Health “to explore and put into practice innovative and novel service delivery arrangements.” Over several months, the CWG worked to put together a proposal and in November 2015 the CWG was awarded $475,000 to act on the recommendations of the proposal. The funds will be used to build on existing information such as health statistics and an investigation of patient journey experiences, and to implement a series of pilot projects that explore ways of providing better patient care in a rural environment.
