The Capital Plan Development Task Force held its eighth meeting on November 27, 2017.

The task force requested a report be developed outlining the results of the feedback survey that closed after Thanksgiving. The task force approved the 2017 Feedback Survey (Opinion) Results Report with appendices that provide survey results data and a copy of the feedback survey. To access the report on the MAHC website, visit the Planning for the Future section at and select the ‘Consultation’ page.

Based on feedback from the task force and the public, information updates have been made to the Planning for the Future section of the MAHC website to avoid potential confusion between previous planning work and the new chapter of work through the Stage 1 process the task force is overseeing. Historic information continues to be available. The task force was supportive of website updates.

There was further dialogue by task force members on the various evaluation criteria proposed to be used for objectively measuring and evaluating the different models. Time was spent discussing definitions of criteria, the concept of access based on a research paper gleaned from the National Center for Biotechnology Information, as well as patient safety indicator documents from Health Quality Ontario.

Task force members shared their feedback with respect to the workshop held on Nov. 17 to define the One Site Inpatient, One Site Outpatient model. The workshop involved task force members, hospital clinicians, community providers, and MAHC Board Directors. A further workshop is being scheduled with the participants to develop the Two Sites (not status quo) model.

The next task force meeting is December 11, 2017.
