Integrated Health Service Plan (IHSP)
The HNHB LHIN is one of 14 LHINs in Ontario established to plan, integrate and fund local health services and coordinate the delivery of home and community care supports and services. As part of the planning process, each LHIN develops a three-year Integrated Health Service Plan (IHSP) to identify its priorities for health system improvements and guides the direction of the local health care system. The IHSP ensures the LHIN and its health service providers direct their focus to initiatives and actions that best serve HNHB LHIN residents.
The 2019-2022 IHSP will build on the ongoing work established within previous IHSPs. It will also reflect new priorities informed by provincial health care strategies as well as the extensive community engagement with patients, families, caregivers, health service providers, service provider organizations, key stakeholders and the general public.
The 2016-19 IHSP built on the foundational work and plans established in previous IHSPs, focused on defining local health care needs, and opportunities to improve and integrate the local health system. It reflected local strategic priorities, in alignment with provincial priorities of the ministry as described in “Patients First: Ontario’s Action Plan for Health Care” (February 2015).
