Element 12C: System-Wide Efficiencies and Savings Consultation Agreement

Nicholas Avdimiretz

What/how

This System-Wide Efficiencies and Savings Consultation Agreement is a three-party agreement between AH, AMA and AHS.

The parties are all interested in identifying opportunities for system-wide efficiency and savings. 

This Consultation Agreement brings the parties together to identify a prioritized list of proposals for system-wide efficiency and savings that are within a common sphere of the three parties. A working group will be established to identify the list of proposals.

The Consultation Agreement includes an appendix of possible initiatives developed in a one-day session in early April. The list is not intended to limit the discussions of the working group, but rather is intended to be illustrative.

You might ask

12C.1 What will be done with the list of proposals that the working group develops?

  • The working group will report to the Minister, who will consult with the Chair, AHS, and President, AMA, on the impact of the recommendations. Following that, the Minister may direct which, if any, of the recommendations are to be pursued.
