The Proposal includes four key components, as follows:
More effective integration of
services and greater equity. Make care more integrated and
responsive to local needs, make Local Health Integration Networks
("LHINs") responsible and accountable for all health
service planning and performance, and identify smaller sub-regions
as part of each LHIN to be the focal point for local planning,
service management and delivery.
Timely access to primary
care, and seamless links between primary care and other
services. Bring the planning and monitoring of primary
care closer to the communities where services are delivered. LHINs,
in partnership with local clinical leaders, would take
responsibility for primary care planning and performance
More consistent and
accessible home and community care. Strengthen
accountability and integration of home and community care. Transfer
direct responsibility for service management and delivery from the
Community Care Access Centres to the LHINs.
Stronger links between
population and public health, and other health services.
Integrate local population and public health planning with other
health services. Formalize linkages between LHINs and public health
The Proposal also includes a series of discussion questions on
each component of the Proposal. The Ministry is inviting feedback
and comments from providers, patients, caregivers and the public,
which can be submitted by email to email@example.com
or online through the Ministry's website.
If implemented the Proposal will have legislative, corporate,
structural and operational implications for the LHINs and service
providers across the care continuum.
