Independent Health Facility Operators

Our firm will work with operators of independent health facilities (“IHFs”). IHFs are community-based non-hospital facilities that provide OHIP-insured diagnostic services or OHIP-insured ambulatory care services. Diagnostic services may include radiology, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, x-rays, computed tomography, nuclear medicine, positron emission tomography (“PET”), pulmonary function studies, and sleep medicine. Ambulatory care services may include surgical, therapeutic, and diagnostic procedures such as dialysis, abortion, laser dermatologic surgery, and ophthalmic, vascular, plastic, endoscopy, and gynaecologic surgery.

We will work with IHF operators on the following regulatory issues:

  • Navigating issues that may arise with regulated health professionals (e.g. physicians, medical radiation technologists, midwives, etc.); and
  • Advising IHF operators on issues related to their practice, such as employment and contracts, licencing, quality assurance, recordkeeping, insurance, facility fees, and privacy/confidentiality.
