Local Health Integration Networks: Structure, Powers and Accountability
The Change Foundation commissioned health law and policy firm Osborne Margo to produce this plain-language guide to the key elements of the legislation governing Ontario’s Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs). At the time, there had been an enormous amount of work done to get the LHINs up and running and immersed in integrating health services. Given that much of the LHIN legislation was then untested, it was not surprising that questions – and confusion – about rules, authority and ambiguities abounded. We produced this guide to help everyone understand the new legal landscape for healthcare in Ontario.
