Development of Financial Indicators and Economic Modelling of Provincial/Federal Cost Drivers for Keewaytinook Okimakanak Telehealth
J.C. Hogenbirk, R.W. Pong, and V.G. Guérin
As Keewaytinook Okimakanak telehealth continues to evolve from a pilot project into a sustainable service, there exist a need for new and updated tools to answer additional questions and concerns posed by stakeholders. As such, CRaNHR developed two major tools: (1) financial and economic indicators for a Balanced Scorecard; and (2) a redesigned economic model that separates cost drivers for the Government of Ontario and the First Nations and Inuit Health Branch (FNIHB). This research project built upon the evaluation framework and the economic model that was developed in an earlier study for the Keewaytinook Okimakanak Telehealth (KOTH) /NORTH Network Telehealth Expansion Project.
