1 TO: FROM: Chair and Members Corporate and Emergency Committee Terri Burton Director, Emergency DATE: February 18, 2015 SUBJECT: Land Ambulance Service Delivery Options REPORT NO: CES RECOMMENDATION None. For information only. ORIGIN The Province of Ontario, Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, transferred responsibility for land ambulance delivery to upper-tier municipalities (UTMs) (and service boards where no upper-tier exists), effective January 1, The District of Muskoka (District) contracted the delivery of ambulance services through a Request for Proposal process in 1999 and again in The District s current contract with Medavie EMS Ontario is scheduled to expire December 31, BACKGROUND The Emergency Health Branch (EHSB) of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care oversees air and land ambulance services in Ontario, as well as, ambulance communication centres that are responsible for dispatching those services. EHSB manages and regulates land ambulance services provided by upper-tier municipalities and District Social Administration Boards by establishing standards for the management, operation and use of ambulance services and ensuring compliance to those standards. The Ambulance Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. A.19, as amended by the Improvement Act, 1997, sets out the legislative framework for the funding and delivery of land ambulance services under Municipal jurisdiction. The District provides 24 hours per day, 7 days per week land ambulance service delivery throughout Muskoka and neighbouring communities when requested. The District and its contractor are collectively responsible for: Administration and records management; Page 1

2 Recruitment, hiring, training and review of staff performance; Scheduling work rosters; Productivity and quality regulations assurance; Liaison with related agencies and levels of government; Fleet and facilities maintenance; Budget preparation; and Policy and procedure development and implementation. All Paramedics are graduates of community college programs and are certified by the Province of Ontario. Paramedics are also certified by the Sunnybrook Centre for Prehospital Medicine. Sunnybrook is the District s Base Program which provides a Medical Director to oversee delegated medical acts performed by Medavie s Paramedics. Paramedics receive a minimum of sixteen (16) hours of Continuing Medical Education (CME) annually. The majority of people requesting ambulance service are seniors. For rural area residents of Muskoka, ambulance service has an increased value as it is a link to emergency health care and an initial point of contact for out of hospital medical care. Muskoka is fortunate to have a group of highly skilled and dedicated Paramedics who have chosen to live and work in Muskoka. Paramedics are a constant feature, remain in the forefront as a service provider, and are ambassadors representing The District Municipality of Muskoka on each call. Paramedic personnel are the most valuable asset to the land ambulance program in Muskoka. ANALYSIS Under the Ambulance Act and Regulations, the District can choose how to deliver land ambulance services. There are various models which are common throughout Ontario, as follows: Direct delivery through a municipal ambulance department; Contracted delivery through a hospital; Contracted delivery through another municipal ambulance department; and Contracted delivery through a private ambulance company. The opportunity to design the land ambulance service delivery is extraordinary for any community, and while there are many possibilities, there are also challenges. The District s goal is to ensure a delivery system that provides optimal clinical care in a cost effective manner. District staff will analyze the delivery of land ambulance services through each model noted above. The evaluation requires several steps in order to make the best decision for the District and the analysis will be driven by the following key principles: Optimizing patient care and transportation; Quality assurance programs and clinical performance; Cohesive support services and administration; Management and operational experience; Opportunities to introduce new ideas and vision for land ambulance service delivery; Minimizing risk to the District; and Opportunities for cost reduction and economies of scale. Annex A illustrates current models of delivery in Ontario. There are thirty-five (35) Upper-Tier Municipalities who are providing direct ambulance service delivery. There are seven (7) District Social Administration Boards that provide direct service. Lastly, there are eight (8) municipalities that Page 2

3 contract the delivery of ambulance services through varying models. There are also five (5) contracted First Nations ambulance services. Staff will prepare a report and recommendations for ambulance service delivery options to Council. FINANCIAL CONSIDERATIONS It should be noted that throughout Ontario, municipalities are responsible for the cost of land ambulance services. The total budgeted expenditures for the District s ambulance services, including contributions to reserves, was $10.4 million in However, the Province of Ontario provides an annual grant intended to offset 50% of eligible costs associated with land ambulance service provisions. As a result, the District s budgeted net levy in 2014 was $5.275 million. COMMUNICATION The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care will be kept apprised of Muskoka s findings, transitions or changes. STRATEGIC PRIORITIES The review of land ambulance service delivery options supports the following strategies as identified in the District of Muskoka s Strategic Priorities: 2.5 Continually investigate means of controlling or reducing expenditures through alternative methods of service delivery. Build strategic alliances or enter into shared services agreements with other agencies, the private sector and the Area Municipalities that result in reduced or avoided costs. Pursue co-operative purchasing initiatives with the Area Municipalities and others in order to reduce expenditures. 8.3 Deliver high quality land ambulance services through a contracted service provider. Continue with the medical first responder services provided through agreement with the Area Fire Departments. 8.7 Facilitate initiatives aimed at improving health care service delivery to all areas of Muskoka. Respectfully Submitted, Terri Burton, RN, DipEd, CMM III EXEC, MBA Director, Emergency Julie Stevens, CPA, CMA Commissioner of Corporate and Emergency Page 3
