|||CCSO Repatriation Guide Addendum 2019||CCSO developed the Repatriation Guide Addendum (2019) to strengthen the repatriation guidelines and ensure hospital accountabilities are outlined for both sending and receiving hospitals, and to facilitate the repatriation process for all patients who may have been transferred for a higher level of care or sub-specialty service.|
CCSO Repatriation Guide||In 2014, CCSO released the Repatriation Guide. The purpose of the Guide is to outline the key steps and processes required by both a sending and receiving hospital to ensure successful repatriation of patients. This Guide is intended to facilitate the repatriation process for all patients who may have been transferred for a higher level of care or subspecialty service and who are deemed appropriate in their care journey for transfer to a hospital closer to home. For additional information please refer to the Repatriation Guide Addendum (2019). |
||Determining if a patient transfer is a repatriation or an interfacility transfer||This document was developed to support the definitions of Repatriation and Interfacility Transfer used by CCSO to describe different types of patient transfers. These 2 questions will:
- help users determine whether a patient transfer should be categorized as a Repatriation or Interfacility Transfer,
- standardize definitions,
- complement the effective use of the Repatriation Tool to allow for data analysis and identification of system improvement opportunities.
||System Goals for Repatriation||This document, launched at the 2015 CCSO Town Hall Meetings, describes system goals for Repatriation that all health partners are striving towards. The purpose of this document is to provide guidance to hospital and LHIN activities related to repatriation. It is aligned with the Provincial Life or Limb Policy, Repatriation Guide, and with CritiCall Ontario's PHRS Repatriation Tool.|
