Integrated Health Service Plan
The North East LHIN’s newest strategic plan, our IHSP, provides the LHIN’s vision, priorities, strategic directions and local strategies for the three-year period 2013 to 2016. It was published in February 2013.
Thousands of Northerners contributed to the plan’s development through community engagement sessions and surveys. Their voices are the bedrock upon which the plan was built.
In response to statistical evidence regarding our region’s large and growing seniors’ population, this IHSP reflects a need to focus health care efforts on that demographic. There is increasing emphasis on community-based care, more integrated care, and on transitions of care. This IHSP uses realignment and transformation to ensure that care is patient-focused and within the public purse of available resources.
The 2013-2016 IHSP reflects a focus on patient-centred care, and is aligned with the NE LHIN’s mission and vision:
Mission: To advance the integration of health care services across Northeastern Ontario by engaging our local communities
Vision: Quality health care, when you need it.

This Environmental Scan was prepared for use by all Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) as a key background paper for each LHIN’s third Integrated Health Service Plan (IHSP). This directly contributes to an understanding of the status of many important health system attributes and allows for data comparisons between the LHINs.
