High Complexity Care Team Physician Lead - EOI


The Victoria Primary Care Network (PCN) is seeking applicants for a Physician Lead to explore and develop the implementation of a High Complexity Care Team (HCCT) in Victoria. The HCCT is a physician-lead initiative in collaboration with the Victoria PCN, Ministry of Health, Island Health, Divisions of Family Practice, and Indigenous Health Collaborative. The Victoria HCCT will be modelled after the Eagle Creek HCCT which has been operating since January 2019, serving the medically and socially most complex patients in the Westshore, Sooke and Esquimalt Regions.

The Victoria HCCT will be a multidisciplinary team that will include Family Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Social Workers, and a Registered Nurse. The Physician Lead will be compensated hourly at the current physician sessional rate to a maximum of 20 hours per month. We are looking for a physician lead to develop the Victoria HCCT and envision the team to be fully functional in the second quarter of 2022. If you are interested in innovative primary care delivery to our most complex patients, we want to hear from you.

Key Points:

  • The HCCT will follow the model piloted in Westshore, attaching highly complex, resource intensive patients not otherwise served by the local system. Appointments are available within one business day, virtually and within one week in person when clinically indicated. The services of the clinic will reduce acute care utilization and provide a stable provider/team relationship with these patients.
  • The successful candidate will need to review the Westshore HCCT model and adapt the model to work within the existing health care structures in Victoria.
  • Will require strong stakeholder engagement activities, including liaising with Victoria/Saanich Health Unit, Privacy Officers, and Inpatient Leadership at the Royal Jubilee Hospital.
  • Responsible for creating a base referral process using clear patient profiles.
  • Responsible for creating a sustainability plan for the Victoria HCCT.
  • Determines the linkages between Westshore HCCT where appropriate.

What we are looking for:

  • Dedicated, hard-working and collaborative physicians.
  • Ability to work as a team with Nursing, Nurse Practitioners, and Allied Health Professionals in a non-hierarchical manner essential.
  • Open to physicians currently practicing as FPs, ERPs or Hospitalists, but hospital-based applicants must have recent community practice experience per CPSBC guidelines.
  • Shared philosophy of trauma-informed, culturally safe care essential.
  • Experience in hospitalist, rural or ER would also be considered assets but not required.
  • Interest in innovation in primary care highly valued.
  • Must have license/own vehicle.

Logistics:

  • Interviews to follow shortly after application.
  • Position start date immediately.
  • Up to 20 hours of planning per month until March 31, 2022.
  • Location will be mobile with meetings online and at various island health clinical sites.

Please contact via email only to Stan Bersenev: sbersenev@victoriadivision.ca including a cover letter and CV.

The Victoria Primary Care Network (PCN) is seeking several applicants to join our High Complexity Care Team (HCCT). We seek several experienced Family Practitioners to join a Group Contract (up to 1.5 FTE combined) to explore and develop the implementation of a HCCT in Victoria.

The HCCT is a physician-lead initiative in collaboration with the Victoria PCN, Ministry of Health, Island Health, Divisions of Family Practice, and Indigenous Health Collaborative. The Victoria HCCT will be modelled after the Eagle Creek HCCT which has been operating since January 2019, serving the medically and socially most complex patients in the Westshore, Sooke and Esquimalt Regions.

The Victoria HCCT will be a multidisciplinary team that will include:

  • Family Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Social Workers, and a Registered Nurse.
  • The 1.5 FTE Family Practitioner Group Contract will consist of several experienced family practitioners seeking to take on part-time duties to serve vulnerable and underserved populations in Urban Greater Victoria.

What we are looking for:

  • Dedicated, hard-working and collaborative physicians.
  • Ability to work as a team with Nursing, Nurse Practitioners, and Allied Health Professionals in a non-hierarchical manner essential.
  • Open to physicians currently practicing as FPs, ERPs or Hospitalists, but hospital-based applicants must have recent community practice experience per CPSBC guidelines.
  • Shared philosophy of trauma-informed, culturally safe care essential.
  • Experience in hospitalist, rural or ER would also be considered assets but not required.

Physician Leads (x6) - Longitudinal Case Manager Pilot Participants


The Victoria Primary Care Network (PCN) is seeking member applicants across its four PCN geographies to join a team of six physicians, led by Dr. Lisa Veres, who will organize, pilot and spread the integration of a Longitudinal Case Management Team (LCMT) of 2-4 Registered Nurses with Primary Care Practices in Urban Greater Victoria. Physician participants will be connected to the Longitudinal Case Managers (LCMs), who will provide longitudinal case management for a subset of complex patients.

The LCMT will support the Victoria PCN to enhance patient-centered care and prevent health crises by providing comprehensive upstream case management to senior clients flagged by their primary care providers as being at “risk”. Longitudinal Case Managers (LCMs) will function as Community Health Services (CHS) Case Managers but clients will be those of physicians within the PCN, rather than being geographically based.

The LCMT will offer services in alignment with those offered by the Island Health CHS and home support services. Longitudinal care will be supported until a proven period of stability is established and after a period of stability, the LCMs will facilitate transitions of patients to the appropriate CHS Team

Physicians will be paid (up to 20 hours a month) at the current sessional rate for time spent organizing the integration and spread of the program across the PCN. The time spent working with patients and the LCM will be compensated as part of your usual payment method for patient care (i.e., Fee for Service). We envision the team to be fully functional by April/May 2022. If you are interested in innovative primary care delivery to our medically complex patients, we want to hear from you.

Key Points:

  • The successful candidates will have a subset of patients who are greater than 75+ and are medically complex (i.e., people with two or more chronic health conditions who are living in community but deemed to be at risk).
  • The physician leads will help to organize, develop, and pilot access to and help with navigating LCM services within the PCN.
  • The physician leads will participate in working groups and meetings and refer patients to the program (up to 20 hrs. /month).
  • Once the physician leads are satisfied with the LCM program and we have a clear understanding of the capacity to include other FP the program, we will spread to other physicians within the PCN.

What we are looking for:

  • Dedicated, hard-working and collaborative physicians.
  • Ability to work as a team and build relationships with LCMs in a non-hierarchical manner is essential.
  • Open to physicians currently practicing in community clinics within the Victoria PCN.
  • Interest in innovation in primary care highly valued.

Logistics:

  • Apply via email to Hwelch@victoriadivision.ca to express your interest.
  • Application deadline: March 15, 2022.
  • Position start date immediately.
  • Up to 20 hours a month.
