Integrated Health System Planning An exclusive Executive Circle Briefing
Agenda Overview of BC Healthcare Regionalization Vancouver Coastal Health Transformation Where we have come from Where we are going Success Factors Challenges Health Authority Collaboration Projects Lessons Learned
Regionalization Overview December 2001 NDP government consolidated 52 regional and community health councils into 6 Health Authorities Created five geographic health authorities to govern, plan and coordinate services regionally, plus the Provincial Health Services Authority to govern specialized province-wide services Each Health Authority consolidated their IT departments into integrated regional service units. i.e. VCHA merged 8 IT departments into 1 corporate IMIS service unit
VCH IMIS Context VCH 2006/07 Operating Budget: 2.3 Billion IMIS 2006/07 Operating Budget: $63.7 Million % of total VCHA Operations: 2.77 Number of IMIS FTEs: 415 2006/07 IMIS Capital Budget: $66 Million Number of Network accounts: 25,000 Number of PCs: 15,000 98 facilities spread across 58,000 km 2
VCH Regionalization Review VCH merged multiple regions with multiple clinical, corporate and technical infrastructure systems. When VCH formed its IT infrastructure: Lacked cross-site, cross-program, cross-network access to patient data Lacked a “patient-centric” view of information Inconsistent data standards and business rules Silos of clinical information Resulting in clinical/business issues: –patient safety compromised –inability to implement key strategies –customer dissatisfaction

VCH Infrastructure Challenges Heterogeneous Infrastructure Inherited every flavour of hardware and OS Inherited a lot of legacy technologies Inconsistent Policies and Processes Everyone did things differently Different degrees of IMIS Process Maturity Insufficient Infrastructure Budgets Want it all integrated yesterday!

Success Factors Cross functional governance models Within VCHA –eHealth, Corporate & Infrastructure Steering Committees prioritize capital projects –HSDA IMIS Advisory Committees – links HSDA and IMIS operations –IMIS Program Delivery Portfolio – PMO Inter Health Authority Committees –BC CIO Council –Technical Advisory Group –Network Working Group –Directories and Authentication Working Group IT Planning Plan into Action, Application Integration Strategy, Technical Architecture, etc. Coordinate and balance internal needs, provincial eHealth directions and National initiatives (Infoway) Collaboration Internal Stakeholders Provincial partners – the other health authorities and vendors
Regionalization Opportunities Rationalization of existing services Reduce duplication Used savings to drive future IMIS investment Contract Renegotiation i.e. Licensing, Network Connectivity, etc. Health Authority Collaboration Everyone was solving the same problems – brought together inter-HA teams i.e. Created a Provincial IP Addressing Scheme
Regionalization Challenges Aligning collective agreements and contract staff IT department integration Geographic complexity System complexity Lack of investment or strategic prioritization in IT created a tremendous volume of pent-up demand Participation in multiple projects simultaneously while maintaining daily operations Balancing VCH needs with Provincial needs
Inter Health Authority Collaboration Projects Private Network Gateway (PNG) Dedicated, secure network linking all HA DI Emergency Transfer Grid Short term (10 day) DI storage partition 56 facilities capable of pushing images to the Grid 5250 studies pushed (Oct – Dec. 2006) Network BC Broader Public Sector WAN contract negotiation Data Centre Broader Public Sector Data Centre Build
Lessons Learned Infrastructure view - focus on the basics Network Connectivity Directory and Domain Integration Email Consolidation Enterprise Backups Have dedicated HR and Finance support throughout the transition Staff consolidation Teasing out budget details Its about service delivery, not server delivery
