Tuesday marked one year since the Saskatchewan Health Authority came into being.

Twelve health regions across the province amalgamated on December 4th, 2017, to form the SHA, the province’s biggest employer, with more than 40,000 employees and 2,600 doctors.

According to the SHA’s annual report, which was released Tuesday, their goal is to better align and coordinate services across the province to provide the right care in the right place at the right time by the right provider.

The SHA says this is being and will be, done by collaborating with patients, staff, physicians and Indigenous groups in order to provide safe, high-quality, inclusive care.

The report also outlined the SHA’s approach to better healthcare in Saskatchewan by way of engaging patients as partners, standardizing services and processes, creating more primary health care sites, expanding mental health and addictions services, building a new hospital in North Battleford, and introducing safety practices in daily work routines.

As well, for the first time in the province’s history, a medical governance structure has been introduced to ensure physicians act as partners in leadership.

Through administrative restructuring, information technology upgrades, standardization of services and processes, partnerships with Indigenous communities, and many other initiatives, the transformation of the SHA will take several years.

Provincial results outlined in the annual report also include information on integration, variance, quality, safety, and cost.

In May of this year, the SHA board approved their inaugural budget of $3.8 billion.
