Integrated Health Service Plan (IHSP)
This fourth iteration of the LHIN’s strategic priorities for improvement in the health care system reflects a three year-period starting in April 2016. The 2016-19 IHSP builds 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 reflects 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).
This was the third Integrated Health Service Plan (IHSP) for the HNHB LHIN, which presents directions and priorities from 2013-2016.
In preparation for the IHSP, the HNHB LHIN undertook a strategic planning process to identify those key directions which, taken together, will transform the local health system. This process, known as ‘ACTION: A Call To IntegratiOn Now’ led to the development of the Strategic Health System Plan 2012-2017.
The overall aim of the HNHB LHIN, over the course of that three year period, was to dramatically improve the patient experience through quality, integration and value.
Our three key strategic directions, flowing from this aim, are:
- Dramatically improving patient experience by embedding a culture of quality throughout the system.
- Dramatically improving the patient experience by integrating service deliver.
- Dramatically improving the patient experience by evolving the role of the LHIN by becoming health system commissioners.

The CSP's key directions for health system improvement - interprofessional care, clinical program integration and community-based health service capacity, are incorporated into the IHSP.
