The reviews were initiated late last year to provide a basis for future planning and delivery of emergency medical services (EMS) in the province.
"These reports are the result of extensive consultation with health professionals, health regions and health sector stakeholders," McMorris said, following a meeting with the Saskatchewan Emergency Medical Services Association (SEMSA) and regional health authority representatives. "They provide us with a much-needed road map for sustainable, efficient and fair emergency medical services that meet the needs of all residents of Saskatchewan."
The results of Saskatchewan's Patient First Review were released October 15, 2009.
Commissioner Tony Dagnone presented to Health Minister Don McMorris his report, which calls for changes to how patients experience the health system, how health services are delivered, and how the system is administered. Two consulting companies also submitted reports, summarizing their research and their recommendations.
Health Minister Don McMorris has announced a province-wide EMS review, to be conducted in consultation with the ambulance industry and regional health authorities. Its recommendations will focus on pre-hospital and inter-hospital transfers, and will form the basis for a long-term plan to improve the province's road ambulance services.
