SHA 2021-22 Recovery Plan
Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) operational work is guided by a Strategic Plan that outlines the overarching goals of the organization. This plan informs the organization’s operational strategies and actions to accomplish those goals and performance targets for measuring success.
The SHA 2021-22 Strategic Plan is being referred to as a Recovery Plan that will help guide the organization through the COVID-19 pandemic and as we transition back to regular operations.
SHA’s main focus as we entered 2021 has and will continue to be our COVID-19 response and delivery for as long as is necessary and this focus has been incorporated into the Recovery Plan. Additional strategies will begin when the organization has the capacity to deliver on them.
Three goals have been identified to guide the SHA through 2021-22:
Goal: Recovery of our workforce and advancing integrated People-Centred Care
Support and strengthen resiliency, wellbeing, and recovery of our workforce. Reinstate essential family members as active participants of the care team through a People-Centred Care approach.
Goal: Connected Care for the people of Saskatchewan
Improve team-based care through maintained COVID-19 response and care delivery. Advancing Connected Care in partnership with communities across Saskatchewan as part of system recovery, co-creating opportunities for people to stay healthy and receive the health care they need sooner, as close to home as possible.
Goal: System stabilization
Support enhancements foundational to the delivery of safe, high quality care across the province through integrated business systems, standardized processes, and improvements to infrastructure, positioning SHA to better serve the people of Saskatchewan.
The introduction of integrated People-Centred Care
The pandemic has resulted in collective strain on people across Saskatchewan including our staff, providers, physicians, patients, residents and families as well as resources and relationships with our health system partners. In order to move forward we must acknowledge this and do the necessary work to repair the health system.
System recovery is vital and requires an evolution in the way we engage with staff, providers, physicians, patients, clients, residents, communities and other health system partners. This evolution necessitates a shift to an integrated People-Centred Care (PCC) approach which embraces patients, residents, families and communities alongside our staff, providers, physicians and inter-sectoral partners as a team that works together to improve health outcomes.
People-Centred Care is at the centre of the SHA Management System, which guides how we do our work and deliver health services. It informs policy, processes and actions, demonstrating respect and compassion for experiences and culture.
SHA’s values and commitment to a philosophy of Patient and Family Centred Care remain our foundation which is expanded by the introduction of integrated People-Centre Care as we strive to deliver on the 2021-22 Recovery Plan.
