The SCA program is currently working with individual groups of service providers on the development of a coordinated approach to access (through either coordinated referral mechanisms or centralized intake centers, or both).
- Creation of a common orthopedic referral form to improve the quality of referrals.
- Creation of a Regional Coordination Centre (Central intake) to reduce system navigation challenges and act as a single point of contact to process Orthopedic referrals
- Creation of specialists’ directory to identify what Orthopedic Surgeons practice in the region and their subspecialties.
- Creation of a Medical Specialist database to improve communication, ensure that referrals are tracked and no patient is lost in the system.
