Health System Transition Progress

Transition Team Weekly Project Update

Weekly updates will be posted below about the Government's progress on transitioning from 12 existing Regional Health Authorities (RHAs) to a single Provincial Health Authority.

Week of October 16, 2017

Activities Underway:

  • The recruitment process for the Saskatchewan Health Authority senior leadership is continuing.
    • Job postings for the first round of available positions closed on Saturday, Oct. 14. The interview process will soon begin for those positions.
      • Announcements will be made as positions are filled.
    • Any new job postings will be posted at healthcareersinsask.ca and mygatewayonline.com, and will be noted in upcoming transition updates.
  • On October 12, a meeting of Human Resources and Communications work stream leads occurred, where the teams discussed internal communications needs to support the transition.
    • Work will now occur to ensure a comprehensive package of information is provided to employees, physicians and managers to prepare for and support the transition.
    • The goal is to ensure information is provided to answer key questions across all work streams (what is changing, what is not changing), with a target to share this information in mid to late November.

Activities To Come:

  • On October 23, representatives from corporate service lines across the RHAs are presenting recommendations for the Saskatchewan Health Authority to consider in the future.
    • During the spring and summer months, 14 service lines gathered together in facilitated sessions to discuss opportunities for their individual service line as part of the Saskatchewan Health Authority.
    • Each service line then completed a report that outlines its current state, ideal future state attributes and a list of initiatives that would help them move to that ideal future state. 
    • This provides the opportunity for service line representatives to present the highlights of their report to the transition team.
