  • Laboratory medicine: The exemplar for value-based healthcare
    • Authors: Larry Arshoff, Gordon Hoag, Craig Ivany, David Kinniburgh
      Pages: 175 - 180
      Abstract: Healthcare Management Forum, Volume 34, Issue 3, Page 175-180, May 2021.
      Value-Based Healthcare (VBHC) aims to improve the overall quality, safety, and sustainability of healthcare while reducing delivery costs of more effective care. Despite advantages associated with VBHC transformation, the road to its adoption has been lengthy. Laboratory Medicine (LM) is in a prime position to lead the transition to VBHC because of its key role in diagnosis and treatment of patients. Laboratory medicine results inform/influence 50% to 70% of all clinical decisions. This article summarizes some issues associated with adoption of VBHC and related healthcare innovations and suggests potential approaches using LM-specific examples to help accelerate adoption. Laboratory medicine is both a useful model for VBHC implementation and facilitator for related innovation adoption by helping to target patient populations that would benefit most from specific interventions. The critical value of rapidly adopted diagnostic technologies used during the COVID-19 pandemic and economic recovery provide important insights about the need to embrace and accelerate VBHC implementation.

  • Can facility-based transitional care improve patient flow' Lessons
           from four Canadian regions

      Abstract: Healthcare Management Forum, Volume 34, Issue 3, Page 181-185, May 2021.
      Units providing transitional, subacute, or restorative care represent a common intervention to facilitate patient flow and improve outcomes for lower acuity (often older) inpatients; however, little is known about Canadian health systems’ experiences with such “transition units.” This comparative case study of diverse units in four health regions (48 interviews) identified important success factors and pitfalls. A fundamental requirement for success is to clearly define the unit’s intended population and design the model around its needs. Planners must also ensure that the unit be resourced and staffed to deliver truly restorative care. Finally, streamlined processes must be developed to help patients access and move through the unit. Units that were perceived as more effective appeared to have satisfactorily addressed these population, capacity, and process issues, whereas those perceived as less effective continued to struggle with them. Findings suggest principles to support optimal design and implementation of transition units.

  • Healthcare leadership ethics: Time for some formal training
    • Authors: Renate Ilse
      Abstract: Healthcare Management Forum, Ahead of Print.
      Clinical ethics and clinical ethics supports, particularly regarding resource allocation and end of life decisions, are well developed in our healthcare system and in most hospitals; this is not the case for the broader category of leadership ethics. Most health managers and executives regularly need to make leadership decisions/choices that require ethical reflection. Without formal training, regular practice, and broad discussion on this issue of leadership ethics, Canadian hospital leaders are increasingly finding their decisions questioned and often end up in the headlines after being judged as failing to make the ethical grade. This article discusses the importance leadership ethics in today's healthcare environment, examines some of the complex ethical challenges created by the current healthcare context and external environment, and then presents an argument for more formal and mandatory leadership ethics education for executives and other health leaders.

  • The role and relevance of public private partnerships in English
           healthcare
    • Authors: Alison Tonge
      Abstract: Healthcare Management Forum, Ahead of Print.
      Health systems are now organized across England to deliver a more integrated population-based approach, not competing for services, rather collaborating and driving better value for the population from a fixed resource. This approach of health system leadership and collaboration has resulted in governance including a mixed economy of public-private provision but with greater alignment to delivering an agreed set of outcomes and value-based healthcare for the population. This dramatic shift from provider competition to collaboration and integration means a reframing of contracting and partnerships with the independent sector.

  • Leadership for a climate resilient, net-zero health system: Transforming
           supply chains to the circular economy
    • Authors: Neil H. Ritchie
      Abstract: Healthcare Management Forum, Ahead of Print.
      The global pandemic has taught us that we can focus the attention of the healthcare system on a clear intention when there is a looming threat. Climate action is required from multiple stakeholders particularly private sector suppliers in order to achieve the net-zero carbon emission by 2050 goal established by the Canadian government. Also building climate resilience among healthcare institutions and their supply chains is urgently needed, as they are already affected by a changing climate. By adopting a circular economy framework, the industry can move away from the current damaging take, make waste economic model and adopt a more sustainable model characterized by designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems. Health leaders can adopt sharing platforms, product as a service, reduce single use products, encourage extended producer responsibility, and value-based procurement in order to further these aims.

  • Addressing prioritization in healthcare amidst a global pandemic
    • Authors: Craig Mitton, Cam Donaldson, Francois Dionne, Stuart Peacock
      Abstract: Healthcare Management Forum, Ahead of Print.
      Trade-offs abound in healthcare yet depending on where one stands relative to the stages of a pandemic, choice making may be more or less constrained. During the early stages of COVID-19 when there was much uncertainty, healthcare systems faced greater constraints and focused on the singular criterion of “flattening the curve.” As COVID-19 progressed and the first wave diminished (relatively speaking depending on the jurisdiction), more opportunities presented for making explicit choices between COVID and non-COVID patients. Then, as the second wave surged, again decision makers were more constrained even as more information and greater understanding developed. Moving out of the pandemic to recovery, choice making becomes paramount as there are no set rules to lean back into historical patterns of resource allocation. In fact, the opportunity at hand, when using explicit tools for priority setting based on economic and ethical principles, is significant.

  • Two-tier healthcare after Cambie
    • Authors: Colleen M. Flood
      Abstract: Healthcare Management Forum, Ahead of Print.
      In 2019, a British Columbia (BC) court decided against a Charter challenge, launched by Cambie Surgical Services (a private clinic). Cambie claimed that various laws in BC suppressing a 2-tier system are contrary to the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and should be overturned. The trial judge carefully weighed the evidence for and against a 2-tier system as a “safety valve” for long wait times in public Medicare, finding overall that 2-tier will do more harm than good in the BC context. It is a small victory and a reprieve for public Medicare, which is increasingly under attack from various forms of privatization. But the courts cannot save healthcare on their own nor should they be expected to. The commitment and participation of all levels of government to improving waiting times is crucial.

  • The problematic place of private payment for healthcare in Australia
    • Authors: Stephen Duckett
      Abstract: Healthcare Management Forum, Ahead of Print.
      Private funding and private hospital provision play a key role in Australian healthcare. However, this role is inherently inequitable, creating a 2-speed health system. Canada should avoid expanding private involvement in paying for healthcare.

  • The strategic leadership of nursing directorates in the context of
           healthcare system reform
    • Authors: Marcela Ferrada-Videla, Sylvie Dubois, Jacinthe Pepin
      Pages: 131 - 136
      Abstract: Healthcare Management Forum, Volume 34, Issue 3, Page 131-136, May 2021.
      In Quebec, the strategic leadership of nursing directorates remains poorly documented despite its importance for the performance of their organizations. Using three focus groups and 31 individual semistructured interviews, a qualitative descriptive study was conducted, including 35 participants from 18 of the Quebec 34 health institutions created in 2015 by the last reform. Seven themes emerged: (1) taking ownership of the strategic positioning, (2) developing and communicating a vision, (3) making strategic, systematic, and measured choices, (4) reframing roles, (5) getting involved in the strategic decision-making processes, (6) developing the political capacity, and (7) building alliances. Four professional and organizational components influenced the nursing directorates’ leadership capacity: clinical credibility, a sufficient number of people educated at the graduate level, organizational culture, and size of the institution. It is expected that these results regarding nursing directorates’ exercise of strategic leadership will lead to better governance and quality of nursing care.

  • Challenges and success strategies for dyad leadership model in healthcare
    • Authors: Anurag Saxena
      Pages: 137 - 148
      Abstract: Healthcare Management Forum, Volume 34, Issue 3, Page 137-148, May 2021.
      The use of a dyad leadership model involving a physician co-leader and a co-leader with a different background, the dyad co-leader, is gradually increasing in Healthcare Organizations (HCOs). There is a paucity of empirical studies on various aspects of this model. This study’s aim was to identify challenges and strategies for success in the dyad leadership model in healthcare. Through a mixed-methods approach utilizing focus groups, surveys, and semi-structured interviews, perceptions of 37 leaders in one HCO at different hierarchical levels were analysed based on their lived experiences. The challenges and success strategies spanned personal, interpersonal, and organizational domains. The areas requiring attention included mindsets, competencies, interpersonal relationship, support, time, communication, and collaboration. In addition, the importance of organizational context addressing its structure, strategy, operations, and culture was highlighted. The findings from this study may be used for praxis, development, and implementation of dyad leadership.

  • Effectively engaging physicians in system change
    • Authors: Colleen Grady, Han Han, Lynn Roberts, Rebecca Van Iersel
      Pages: 149 - 153
      Abstract: Healthcare Management Forum, Volume 34, Issue 3, Page 149-153, May 2021.
      What started as a prospective study to support clinical leaders and inform strategies to engage their peers in system change was impacted due to a rapidly evolving political agenda amid a pandemic, affecting both organizations and outcomes. Participants in this mixed methods study in one Local Health Integrated Network (LHIN) in Ontario included clinical leaders and community physicians over a period of 14 months. As the provincial government shifted regional healthcare governance from LHINs to Ontario Health Teams, there was an increase in the engagement of community physicians and leaders identified a noticeable culture shift with the potential to drive change. High-performing healthcare systems are dependent not only on physicians who can lead and engage others but a government that can acknowledge this.

  • Authentic and ethical leadership during a crisis
    • Authors: David Keselman, Marcy Saxe-Braithwaite
      Pages: 154 - 157

      In today’s climate and environment, the conventional relationship between caring, economic, and leadership practices may no longer meet the needs of patients, clinicians, providers, or systems. It is asserted that in the current complicated and complex healthcare environment challenged by a multitude of issues, a shift toward human caring values and an ethic of authentic healing relationships is required, especially in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic. The costs of unethical behaviour can be even greater for followers. When we assume the benefits of leadership, we also assume ethical burdens. It is the assertion and experience of the authors that the triangle of ethics and ethical behaviour, followers, and patient outcomes is closely interrelated and affects each other in a very intimate and direct way. Unethical leadership may lead to follower disappointment and distrust, leading to lack of interest and commitment, consequently negatively impacting patient outcomes and organizational effectiveness.

      Surgical case costing is critical for health leaders to make decisions about resource utilization. Synoptic reporting offers the potential for surgeons to capture these costs and work with other leaders to make evidence-based decisions. The purpose of this study was to determine whether surgeons documented intra-operative cost drivers as part of their operative report. This article outlines a synoptic reporting system at a quaternary spine care centre. Data were captured from 2015 to 2020. Surgeon rates of documentation for specific devices, bone graft, and surgical adjuncts were evaluated. It is hoped that the results of this survey will help to guide programs to capture costs in other settings.

  • An exploration of Canadian transitional care programs for older adults
    • Authors: Lori E. Weeks, Brittany Barber, Eileigh Storey MacDougall, Marilyn Macdonald, Ruth Martin-Misener, Grace Warner
      Pages: 163 - 168
      Abstract: Healthcare Management Forum, Volume 34, Issue 3, Page 163-168, May 2021.
      Transitional care programs are effective for improving patient outcomes upon discharge from acute care services and reducing the burden of healthcare costs; however, little is known about the types of transitional care programs for older adults across Canada. This exploratory study gathered an in-depth understanding of Canadian transitional care programs and described how each program functions to support older adults and family/friend caregivers. Nine key informants were interviewed about the development of transitional care programs within four Canadian provincial regions including Atlantic, Central, Prairie, and West Coast. Key facilitators and barriers influencing the development and long-term success of transitional care programs included program scope, program structure, continuity of care, funding, and health system infrastructure. Future research is required to identify how a broad range of transitional care programs operate and to disseminate knowledge with health leaders and decision-makers to ensure transitional care programs are embedded as essential health system services.

  • Artificial intelligence-based imaging analytics and lung cancer
           diagnostics: Considerations for health system leaders
    • Authors: Amy Zarzeczny, Paul Babyn, Scott J. Adams, Justin Longo
      Pages: 169 - 174
      Abstract: Healthcare Management Forum, Volume 34, Issue 3, Page 169-174, May 2021.
      Lung cancer is a leading cause of cancer death in Canada, and accurate, early diagnosis are critical to improving clinical outcomes. Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based imaging analytics are a promising healthcare innovation that aim to improve the accuracy and efficiency of lung cancer diagnosis. Maximizing their clinical potential while mitigating their risks and limitations will require focused leadership informed by interdisciplinary expertise and system-wide insight. We convened a knowledge exchange workshop with diverse Saskatchewan health system leaders and stakeholders to explore issues surrounding the use of AI in diagnostic imaging for lung cancer, including implementation opportunities, challenges, and priorities. This technology is anticipated to improve patient outcomes, reduce unnecessary healthcare spending, and increase knowledge. However, health system leaders must also address the needs for robust data, financial investment, effective communication and collaboration between healthcare sectors, privacy and data protections, and continued interdisciplinary research to achieve this technology’s potential benefits.

      Abstract: Healthcare Management Forum, Volume 34, Issue 3, Page 186-192, May 2021.
      Healthcare is constantly evolving and thus requires lifelong learning. Evidence-based learning has been shown to lead to better patient outcomes, yet many healthcare professionals report gaps in their research abilities. We sought to evaluate the efficacy of a professional development program in addressing identified gaps.

  • An ethical approach to considering family presence during COVID-19
    • Authors: Elizabeth Bardon
      Pages: 193 - 195
      Abstract: Healthcare Management Forum, Volume 34, Issue 3, Page 193-195, May 2021.
      The COVID-19 pandemic has required healthcare organizations to introduce risk mitigation strategies that challenge usual family presence (visitor) policies. Policies within healthcare must be viewed from an ethical lens, which includes ensuring that the patient voice helps guide decision-making. In considering pandemic-specific family presence policies, Kingston Health Sciences Centre, an academic tertiary care hospital in Southeastern Ontario, applied an ethical framework for decision-making. The various tensions between the values of duty to provide care, protection of the public from harm, transparency, proportionality, and patient-centred care are highlighted in a discussion of how patient partners contributed to decision-making about family presence in the first 9 months of the COVID-19 pandemic.
