HOSPITAL SERVICE ACCOUNTABILITY AGREEMENT (H-SAA) FOR 2008-2010
Goal – The LHIN seeks to enter into a Hospital Service Accountability Agreement (“H-SAA”) with the Hospital. The H-SAA reflects that to the extent one party succeeds, the other party will also succeed as the parties share a common interest in supporting “…a health care system that keeps people healthy, gets them good care when they are sick and will be there for our children and grandchildren.”
MOHLTC’s Role – the MOHLTC provides strategic leadership, planning and central oversight as steward of the health system in Ontario. The MOHLTC is an active partner in supporting the health system and establishes strategic direction, multi-year plans, provincial standards and priorities. The MOHLTC also monitors, evaluates and reports on the performance of the health system and the health of Ontarians and establishes funding models and funding levels for the health system.
LHIN and Hospital Shared Roles – The parties will collaborate and cooperate to facilitate the achievement of this Agreement. The parties will work together to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of Hospital Services using a continuous improvement framework.
LHIN’s Role – the LHIN will lead, plan, coordinate, integrate and fund the local health system. The LHIN will also monitor, evaluate, report on and address the performance of health service providers and the local health system.
Hospital’s Role – The Hospital provides Hospital Services and organizational leadership supporting systems integration and improved health outcomes. The Hospital also plans, monitors, evaluates and reports on the performance of Hospital Services delivered by the Hospital.
The LHIN acknowledges and supports the role of local independent hospital boards contributing to an effective and efficient local health system. The Hospital’s Board of Directors remains fully responsible for using its authority to govern the Hospital under Applicable Law and Applicable Provincial Policies.
