Recognition in Delivering Value-based Healthcare

This recognition aims to increase the profile and understanding of value-based healthcare by honouring an organization, or team, that is deliberate in changing the way that care is delivered, resulting in improved patient outcomes. This means that patients are being optimally cared for at the right time, in the right setting and at the right cost.

The burden of cardiovascular disease in the North West LHIN is extremely high. To significantly improve patient care for the region, TBRHSC and UHN developed and executed the “One Program on Two Site Model” for the provision of Cardiac and Vascular Surgical services.

This model will save lives and limbs, address the burden of cardiovascular disease, and improve access to services.
