Highlights of the network reorganization

Organization and services:

  • Better coordination of services based on health and social service territory.
  • Simplified care for patients and easier work for caregiver.
  • Wider range of resources available to the population of each health and social service territory.
  • Better patient file information flow when care requires the intervention of many service points in the same region, which will prevent the duplication of previous tests and examinations upstream.
  • Integration, in most regions, of services governed by a single institution, such as a Centre Intégré de Santé et de Services Sociaux (CISSS) or a Centre Intégré Universitaire de Santé et de Services Sociaux (CIUSSS).
  • Maintenance of access programs to English-language services for the Anglophone population and the status of existing institutions recognized under section 29.1 of the Charter of the French language.

Administration, management and finance:

  • Maintenance of existing local service networks (LSNs) and the integration of LSNs into the Réseau Territorial de Services (RTS).
  • Reduction in the number of service agreements within the Réseau Territorial de Services (RTS) and the maintenance of existing LSNs for the benefit of RTS.
  • Reduction in the number of hierarchical management levels from 3 to 2 levels in the network.
  • Reduction in the number of public institutions from 182 to 34.
  • Reduction in the number of institution boards from 182 to 33.
  • Abolition of agency boards.
  • Significant reduction in the number of annual management reports and audited financial statements.
  • A substantial reduction in the number of senior executive and administrative staff positions.
  • Improved sharing, distribution, recruitment and retention of staff within a region.
  • Ultimately, savings of $220 million a year, mainly due to the reduction of administrative structures and bureaucracy in the network.
  • Maintenance of existing institution corporations and their powers.
  • Maintenance of user committees and their funding with the creation of a user committee at CISSS and CIUSSS, from which will emerge a representative of the users who will sit on the board.
  • Maintenance of each foundation's original name. The funds raised are exclusively earmarked for the institution's facilities merged with which the foundation is affiliated.
