Katherine – Patient Access and Transition Support (PATS)
As Regional Manager, Patient Access and Transition Support (PATS), I'm part of a dedicated team of specialists, administrators and waitlist coordinators that supports the day-to-day movement of patients across the health system. Working with a utilization team at each site, we help ensure that Winnipeggers who need health care services receive the care they need when they need it most.
Patient flow is a priority for our system to improve the experience of our patients. That makes the work we do so important. From identifying best practices and standardizing work flows to the efficient use of information sharing tools such as Oculys, Medworxx and Capacity Planner, the PATS team works to ensure the health-care system can effectively respond to demand and manage capacity. I'm so proud of the work we do.
