At this time, the MH PCN Board donates their time and thought leadership because they recognize the importance of a strong and united primary care voice to inform and influence the evolution of our health system. None of the family physicians here have received a stipend for their participation on the 2020-2021 board of the Mississauga Halton Primary Care Network.
Mississauga Halton Primary Care Network Board
Ontario Health (Central Region) serves to lead the regional health system planning, integration, funding, and performance accountability across its communities, which include Mississauga and Halton. The Mississauga Halton Primary Care Network (MH PCN) aims to create a strong and united primary care community, shaping the health care system to best serve patients, their families, and providers.
Ontario Health (Central Region) strongly supports the mission of the MH PCN and has offered the MH PCN temporary in-kind staff support starting April 2020, contingent on its work to both 1) organize primary care into one unified voice and 2) move primary care towards an integrated health care system. The support is provided in the spirit of partnership between the two organizations and promoting stewardship of integrated care within the health care system.
By providing this support, Ontario Health (Central Region) does not assume any role in governance, accountability, or management of the MH PCN. It also does not change the business model of the MH PCN, which currently operates as an independent, grassroots, and volunteer organization.
