GHHN Primary Care Integrated Health Pathway Clinical Lead

Greater Hamilton Health Network (GHHN) Primary Care Integrated Health Pathway Clinical Lead

Building Community Health Together

As part of system transformation currently underway in Ontario’s healthcare system, the Greater Hamilton Health Network (GHHN) OHT is seeking a Family Medicine/Primary Care Clinical Leader to provide clinical expertise and operational leadership for the activities and planning of Primary Care Centered Integrated Care Pathways.

At the core of this work is the development of “shared understandings” between first contact/primary care and the secondary care/specialized services required to support patients and their families along specific health care journeys related to prioritized clinical conditions.  In this context, a shared clinical agreement describes the optimal use of primary care and consultative services to diagnose, manage and support priority clinical conditions including medical workups, access to relevant diagnostic services, appropriate referrals, shared care protocols and support for hand offs back to primary care.  These agreements hold the fundamental premise that the best outcomes for patients and the system occur when the central elements of primary care: continuity, coordination, comprehensiveness, and access are core to the design of each pathway.

The central health journey is one shared by the patient and their family with their family physician or primary care provider and the primary care team.  Primary care centred pathways also often involve consultation or referral to relevant community agencies and programs.  The involvement of these key partners is also predicated on centered the core elements of primary care as outlined above.

The GHHN Primary Care Integrated Health Pathway lead will work effectively and as needed with Greater Hamilton Health staff, primary care network members, relevant specialist colleagues, community agencies, patient advisors, and stakeholders relevant to each priority condition.  Each pathway is expected to first ensure clinical consensus for a sustainable population health approach for the medical care of patients presenting with/experiencing the priority condition, oversee the translation of that co-design into a relevant pathway  and then, with the support of the GHNN, implement the knowledge translation and implementation of that pathways into the clinical and community stakeholder group responsible for the care of that condition.

All pathways are expected to include patient involvement and sign off to ensure lived experience and the patient perspective are included in each step.

Key Competencies:

  • System thinker with understanding of clinical leadership in health system collaborations.
  • Trustworthy and credible clinician, able to demonstrate the ability to reflect and integrate the diverse viewpoints of different system stakeholders, including specialists from relevant disciplines
  • Able to include the voice and experience of patient/client and caregiver partners to ensure design of each pathway optimizes their experience and ability to participate in their own care
  • Excellent communicator, strategic thinker, and team player with a passion for health system improvement and the ability to influence change.
  • Self-directed and highly motivated; able to handle and navigate clinical and operational ambiguity with multiple stakeholders.
  • Proven ability to build, strengthen, and maintain relationships and partnerships with stakeholders from diverse communities, backgrounds, and experience.
  • Expertise, understanding, and/or passion for a population health approach and population health management.

Qualifications and Experience:

  • A practicing Family Physician holding a valid certificate of registration and in good standing with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario.
  • Actively practicing within Greater Hamilton and Area.
  • Expertise, understanding, and/or passion for population health management, quality and process improvement and digital health.
  • Ability to manage competing demands and meet tight timelines.
  • Knowledge of provincial health care structures, processes, and funding mechanisms is strongly preferred.
  • Excellent communicator, strategic thinker, and team player with a passion for health system improvement and the ability to influence change.
  • Experience in applying a health equity lens to projects/initiatives aligned with the quadruple aim (population health, patient experience, per capita cost, provider experience) preferred.
  • Formal leadership training, and experience in academic detailing or mentoring considered an asset.

Compensation: $165/hour

Predicted Time Commitment: estimated to be between 10-12 hours per month.

Cover letters and resumes will be accepted until May 31, 2024
