Nova Scotia Health Authority reports progress on first three-year strategic plan


HALIFAX, N.S. – Nova Scotia Health Authority’s first strategic plan, Healthier Together 2016-2019, was launched in April 2016. It provided a roadmap to build, grow and shape our newly-formed organization by defining our priorities and helping ensure we were moving in a consistent direction.
We will launch a renewed strategic plan in July. In advance of that, NSHA has published Healthier Together 2016-19 – Measuring our progress, to provide an update on what has been accomplished during the life of our first plan. 
“We are acutely aware of the challenges facing our health system. There is plenty of data to support what our teams, patients and families are telling us about the challenges they are experiencing in terms of access to care and services,” NSHA president and CEO Janet Knox said.
“Measuring, monitoring and reporting on our efforts helps us stay focused on what matters. It allows us to identify what’s working well and where we may need to consider different strategies. Our data shows that we can move the mark and make a difference when we put focused effort, energy and resources towards a common priority.”
NSHA’s annual general meeting takes place on July 10 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Holiday Inn, Truro. Everyone is welcome. You can register here.
