Designed for experienced financial professionals, administrators and CEOs, this annual workshop will closely examine the long term care homes funding system. Representatives from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) and Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) will delve into some of the more complex and challenging topics such as Health System Funding Reform, RUGs, indicators, quality improvement plans and accountability requirements. Participants will also hear from a panel of OANHSS members on how to effectively utilize financial data to report to your governing body.

This workshop will:
  • Provide an advanced overview on the current long term care funding system.
  • Discuss the Ministry’s vision and multi-year plan to achieve Health System Funding Reform and its impact on long term care homes.
  • Explain the role of LHINs and the MOHLTC in financial and performance management accountability.
  • Provide a technical presentation on RUGs III, including transition corridors, re-indexing factor and data quality standards for RUGs III.
  • Discuss the use of financial indicators and Quality Improvement Plans (QIP).
