Resources Committee

The CAHO Resources Committee provides strategic advice to CAHO Council on resourcing issues stemming from and impacting CAHO’s mission. “Resources” are defined as operations, finances, people, facilities, technology and other appropriate areas. The Committee considers and advises on financial or other resource enablers to advance the stability of and investment in the health research and innovation enterprise of CAHO members. The Committee is comprised of 23 senior executives responsible for operations within each CAHO hospital who bring extensive and wide-ranging experience related to hospital operations and finance.

Current Committee foci include: developing the vision for how to ideally resource the research and innovation enterprise at a CAHO hospital, using that as a starting point to identify operational, financial and other structural areas where the CAHO community can collaboratively advance issues; and advising on developments in the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care’s Health-Based Allocation Model (HBAM) and Patient-based Payment (PbP) policy from the perspective of academic hospitals.
