Written by DHPO on . Posted in DHPO Updates

I would like to take this opportunity to advise you of the current activities at the DHPO: *ongoing advocacy for  HARP to be revamped; becoming your own RPO and ordering radiographs for ourselves would indeed be in the best interest of the public

*the DHPO will be engaging in a joint meeting with the ODHA to review our mutual mandates with regards to ongoing issues, including HARP

*ongoing discussions with the Competition Bureau and some “union” front people to overcome barriers with access to care, from some employers and insurance companies

*negotiations with ODHA regarding the new 2014 Fee Guide (now in place)

*the DHPO was recognized as a key informant in the Independent Review of Oral Health in Ontario

*the DHPO will be involved with the CDHO & ODHA at their joint meeting in May, 2014

*DHPO attendance at the CDHO council meetings

*exciting 2014 Conference and AGM; mark your calendars for the weekend of March 28 – 29, at The Quality Suites Inn in Toronto; Airport strip.... watch the website for details

* New lower membership fee: $99. April 2014 – March 2015; please consider renewing NOW
