Response to the Central LHIN Integrated health Service Plan 2013-2016 Strategic Framework, (2012)
Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) are not-for-profit organizations responsible for planning, integrating and funding local health services in 14 different geographic areas of the province. LHINs are intended to be the managers for health services that are delivered in hospitals, long-term care facilities, community health centres, community support services and mental health agencies.
The Central Local Health Integration Network, which includes York Region, is currently developing its Integrated Health Service Plan (IHSP) 2013-16 – a three-year road map for improving local health care services and has invited public feedback to its plan.
On July 27, the Alzheimer Society of York Region submitted an evidence brief to the Central LHIN that demonstrates the epidemiological evidence of the growth of dementia in our service area and its projected impact on the strategic priorities within the IHSP 2013-2016 draft framework, and offers ideas and recommendations for constructively addressing those impacts.
