Recap: March 11 MH Primary Care Network Interim Leaders Meeting 4

In the two weeks that have passed since the fourth Interim Leaders Meeting, so much about the way we do our work and lead our lives has changed, none more so than for the Primary Care physicians of the Mississauga Halton LHIN.

 

It has never been a more important for family physicians to feel connected to one another, to know there are others that understand what it feels like to be on the front lines, to have a true sense of community in these rapidly changing and uncertain times.

 

At their March 11th meeting, with the governance structure, nomination and election processes confirmed, the Interim Leaders turned their sights to the document that will guide how the MH PCN will exist and conduct business: the Constitution! A draft document was reviewed with those in attendance; all feedback will be synthesized, rolled up and changes made before the document is presented (alongside the newly elected Board of Directors!) at the next Community Meeting. The Interim Leaders also took time to discuss a Near Term Communications Strategy, which includes the MH PCN website! With help from Dr. Greg Van de Mosselaer, changes have been made to the existing website so that it is easier to use and reflects the new purpose and activities of the organization.  

 

PLEASE NOTE: In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the original date of Tuesday, March 31st for the next MH PCN Community Meeting has been pushed forward to Monday, May 25th.

 

Voting for the inaugural MH Primary Care Network Board of Directors is open to all family physicians in the Mississauga Halton area; voting opened on Tuesday, March 10th and continues through to 9:00pm on Wednesday, March 25th. Ten family physicians from different sub-regions across Mississauga Halton have put their names forward as candidates, click here to see their bios.There is still time to cast your vote!!  To access the Leadership Election ballot, click here

Recap: February 13 MH Primary Care Network Interim Leaders Meeting 3

On the eve of Valentine’s Day, the Interim Leaders for the MH Primary Care Network had more than chocolates and flowers on their minds… this was an important evening for decision-making about the organization’s new governance structure, membership criteria, and leadership election process (Feb – Mar). We will be announcing the formally elected leaders at our next Community Meeting on Tuesday, March 31st, so please come join us!

To access the full meeting presentation, please click on the following link:

At this meeting, a number of key decisions were made to help the organization get established enough to hold formal leadership elections, including:

  • Selected a Board of Directors as our governance structure: We selected a Board of Directors as the most appropriate governance structure for the organization based on our need to be representative across the diversity of primary care physicians in Mississauga and Halton, including different payment models and geographies. The Board would consist of one Board Chair and up to 14 Board Members, with the possibility of a Board-appointed Executive Committee (either within the Board or hired staff at a later date) to oversee day-to-day operations. Descriptions of these positions can be found at this link: Leadership Descriptions
  • Not incorporating at this point in time: We decided by a close majority vote that we will not incorporate at this point in time. The decision will be revisited as needed by the Board as the organizations grows and matures (a table summarizing elements of non-incorporated versus incorporated organizations was presented and discussed; this table can be accessed in the meeting presentation)
  • Representing only primary care physicians at this early stage: Although it was a close majority vote, it was decided that the organization would represent the collective voice of primary care physicians only (as a representative group is currently lacking), but may expand its scope to other providers at a later time
  • All 1000+ primary care physicians in Mississauga and Halton are considered members: By including all primary care physicians within our geography to be “general members,” everyone can vote in the inaugural leadership election! There was rich discussion about many aspects of membership, including the possibility of implementing tiered membership and dues at a later point to carry out critical network activities. Once the newly elected leadership is in place, these and other decisions will be finalized.

Now you’re probably wondering how the leadership application and voting process will work, right? Because you’re thinking these are exciting times for primary care to be getting organized, right?

  • Applications will be accepted from Tuesday, February 25th at 9:00 AM to Monday, March 9th at 12:00 PM (noon)
  • The inaugural MH PCN leadership election will take place between Tuesday, March 10th at 9:00 AM and Wednesday, March 25th at 5:00 PM (a link to the voting site will be posted on the MH PCN website shortly)
  • All primary care physicians within the MH LHIN geographic boundary are eligible to apply for leadership positions, as well as vote in the first MH PCN election

MH PCN Overview

The MH PCN is a not-for-profit organization led by primary care physicians for primary care physicians in the Mississauga Halton region. An interim leadership group of 15 primary care physicians have come together since December 2019 to support the development of the MH PCN as a formal organization with elected leadership that can be representative of the broader primary care physician community.

A Board of Directors – comprised of primary care physicians, representative of all payment models and geographies across Mississauga and Halton – has been selected as the most appropriate governance structure for the MH PCN. There will be one Board Chair and up to 14 Board Member positions.

Recap: January 28 MH Primary Care Network Community Meeting

The enthusiasm and work continues for the Mississauga Halton Primary Care Network!

At the first Community Meeting for the renewed MH PCN on Tuesday, January 28th, 2020, Dr. Salesh Budhoo presented on behalf of the Interim Leaders the journey and work of the MH PCN to-date, and outlined the important decisions that remain to be made.

Jan 28 Community Meeting Presentation

The presentation highlighted the vision, mission, values and 3-year strategic priorities that were drafted November to January through the MH PCN meeting activities. The rest of the meeting focused on gaining feedback from the broader community on how to define the MH PCN membership and the leadership election process.

In keeping with the spirit of co-design, attendees at the meeting broke out into small groups to consider the following:

1. What could be the benefits of membership in the MH PCN?

2. What would I be willing to commit to as a member?

3. What would the roles and responsibilities be for each type of member?

4. How would we recruit members?

5. What could the MH PCN do for me that is different from the OMA, OCFP or the Ontario Health Team (OHT) Physician Advisory Groups?

All of the rich feedback will be synthesized and presented to the Interim Leaders at their next meeting on February 13th. At this meeting, the Interim Leaders will finalize the MH PCN membership criteria, governance structure, and leadership election process.

This will allow MH PCN leadership elections to take place mid-late March, in advance of the second Community Meeting to be held on Tuesday, March 31st, 2020, 6:30-9:00 PM. Stay tuned for more information on the leadership elections and how to be involved!

At the March 31 Community Meeting meeting, we will be announcing the elected MH PCN leaders and also be receiving final feedback from the broader Primary Care community on the MH PCN 3-year strategic plan and constitution. Come out and have your voice heard!

Next steps:

1. Mark your calendars! Tuesday, March 31st, 2020 from 6:30pm to 9:00pm will be the next MH PCN Community Meeting and we want to see you there! Confirm your attendance through Eventbrite at this link.

2. It’s never too late to be involved with the PCN! Please answer this quick survey to let us know how you want to be involved (as a leader / advisor, or simply engaged / informed). 

3. Feel free to reach out to Bonnie Scott at bonnie.scott@lhins.on.ca with any questions, comments, or concerns. (The Mississauga Halton LHIN is providing interim administrative support to the MH PCN.)
