Reducing Red Tape

Ensuring our health care system can meet the needs of today’s patients and be sustainable for future generations means providing the right care in the right place. To do that, we need government’s help to reduce red tape and allow hospitals to work more closely with other health service providers to give Ontario’s patients the care they need, when and where they need it.

Reducing Red Tape

Our hospitals are committed to ensuring our system can deliver the care Ontarians need today while working towards building a system that is sustainable for future generations. But as our population grows and ages, capacity has become an issue – too often patients are receiving treatment in unconventional spaces or having to wait in hospital for care they should be receiving in more appropriate and less expensive settings, like long-term, home or community care.

To address our capacity issues and put an end to hallway health care, we need government’s help to reduce the red tape that prevents hospitals from working together with other health care providers. We need to give local communities the flexibility they need to innovate and empower our hospitals and other health providers to find creative, cost-effective ways to solve the unique problems facing patients and families in their communities. If our health care providers are allowed to work together more closely, we can ensure Ontario’s patients are receiving the right mix of hospital, home and community care and help put an end to hallway health care. 

How Can You Help Our Hospitals?

To keep up with the needs of our growing and aging population, protect access to front-line hospital care and avoid decreases in services or staff, our hospitals need a funding increase of 3.45% this year. But long-term, to better meet the needs of our growing and aging population, we need government to help reduce the red tape that prevents hospitals from working together with other health care providers to ensure Ontario’s patients are receiving the right care in the right place.
