Alberta Health Minister Tyler Shandro is set to reveal Monday the results of a review that was conducted into the structure, processes and programs of Alberta Health Services (AHS).
Shandro announced in July 2019 that Ernst & Young had been awarded a $2-million contract to conduct the review.
Campaigning last February, now-Premier Jason Kenney said he would commission a performance review of AHS within 30 days of taking office.
At the time, he said he wanted to ensure that health-care dollars go to front-line services instead of administration.
Shandro said the review would include:
- A comprehensive examination of AHS structure and organization.
- Evaluation of programs, services and policies to identify potential areas to reduce costs and improve performance.
- Identification of opportunities to make AHS operations more responsive to the front lines and Albertans.
- Comparisons to other provinces and best practices.
AHS has more than 102,000 employees and a budget of $15.2 billion.
