Committees, Groups and Workgroups

As of June 22, 2017, we are CorHealth Ontario, an organization formed by the merger of the Cardiac Care Network of Ontario and the Ontario Stroke Network, with an expanded mandate spanning cardiac, stroke and vascular services through the entire course of care. CorHealth Ontario provides a strategic understanding of the care needs of both patients and providers, as the basis for clinical quality improvement, provincial planning, resource allocation and measurement performance of quality and outcomes.

A full CorHealth Ontario website is in development. Until its launch, please continue to visit this website for the information you need. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please send us an e-mail.

Provincial Workgroups

(time limited)

  • Provincial Integrated Workgroups (PIWG)
    The Provincial Integrated Work Plan Committee (PIWPC) will provide leadership in the development, management and communication of the content of PIWPC, and its evaluation. It is recognized that the Work Plan content is governed by the Annual Planning Cycle for Development of the Provincial Integrated Work Plan (Appendix A). The PIWPC is intended to streamline provincial planning and project development in the Ontario’s Regional Stroke Networks to maximize efficiencies, improve timely communication processes, maximize access to and use of expertise and scope of practice, and to strengthen relationships. Such an Integrated Work Plan will also enhance the process for provincial groups to contribute to the annual development of the overarching Work Plan of CorHealth Ontario.
