Background
LOCAL HEALTH SYSTEM INTEGRATION ACT, S.O. 2006, C. 4, PART II, S. 3 (opens a new window)
Function

Created by the Ontario government in March 2006, Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) are not-for-profit crown corporations that are mandated under the Local Health System Integration Act, 2006, to plan, fund and integrate health services for their local communities. The objects of the LHINs include:

• to promote the integration of the local health system to provide appropriate, co-ordinated, effective and efficient health services;

• to allocate and provide funding to health service providers, in accordance with provincial priorities, so that they can provide health services and equipment; • to enter into agreements to establish performance standards and to ensure the achievement of performance standards by health service providers that receive funding from the network;

• to provide health and related social services and supplies and equipment for the care of persons in home, community, and other settings, and to provide goods and services to assist caregivers in the provision of care for such persons; • to manage the placement of persons into long-term care homes, supportive housing programs, chronic care and rehabilitation beds in hospitals;

• to engage the community of persons and entities involved with the local health system in planning and setting priorities for that system, including establishing formal channels for community input and consultation. The 14 LHINs fund more than 2,000 health service providers, including hospitals, community support services, long-term care homes, community mental health and addictions providers and community health centres.
