Regional Program Leads (2 Positions), South West Community Care Access Centre

London, Ontario
Deadline June 28, 2013

Community Care Access Centres (CCACs) are publicly funded health care agencies dedicated to getting people the home care and community care they need to stay well, heal at home and stay safely in their homes longer.

The South West Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) serves 60,000 people each year, across a vast region from Tobermory in the north to Long Point and Port Glasgow in the south. Our role is to get people the home and community care they need to stay well, heal at home and stay safely in their homes longer. We also help people transition through the system and to other living arrangements. We do it by working in partnership with clients, families, providers, community organizations, and others.

The Province of Ontario is committed to creating an integrated Electronic Health Record (EHR) by 2015 for the residents of Ontario. The EHR will ensure that the patient's health information is made accessible in a timely, secure fashion at any point of service in the health care system. The EHR will also improve quality of care, the sustainability of the health system, enhance planning and decision support, and reduce wait times. To meet this objective, eHealth Ontario has divided the province into three clusters that will be working in parallel on complimentary priorities: connecting North East Ontario (cNEO), connecting Greater Toronto Area (cGTA), and
connecting South West Ontario (cSWO).

London Health Sciences is the lead organization that provides overall direction and program management for cSWO. In the South West LHIN region, the South West CCAC will be the host Delivery Partner and the following opportunities exist:
