The Central East Local Health Integration Network (Central East LHIN) is developing its fourth Integrated Health Service Plan (IHSP), which sets out shared goals for the organizations and service providers that make up the local health care system including hospitals, community support service agencies, community health centres, the community care access centre, community mental health and addiction agencies and long-term care homes.
As the Central East LHIN develops IHSP 4, they are inviting patients, clients, consumers, residents, caregivers, and health service providers to complete a brief survey.
In IHSP 4 (2016-2019), the focus will continue to be putting people and patients first – improving their health care experience and their health outcomes – as outlined in Ontario’s Patients First: Action Plan for Health Care.
This will mean continuing to improve access, better connecting services, and providing people with the education and information they need to make the right decisions about their health. In the Central East LHIN, this will mean helping people to live healthier at home.
Survey for patients, clients, consumers, residents, and caregivers
The Central East LHIN wants to hear from patients, clients, consumers, residents, and caregivers about their experiences with the health care system, their goals for living a healthier life in their homes and communities, and how that can be achieved.
