Minister's Mandate Letter
On May 1, 2017, the Honourable Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care issued a mandate letter to the Central East Local Health Integration Network. The mandate letter focuses on key ministry initiatives and outlines the broad service and performance expectations for the LHIN in 2017/18.
Minister's Order for Health System Integration
In May 2017, home care services and staff began to transfer from Community Care Access Centres (CCACs) to Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs).This structural system change helps the Patients First: Action Plan for Health Care move forward.
The process is seamless for patients and home care clients, with no disruption to care or patient experience and no need to change health care providers.
The Central East CCAC transferred to the Central East LHIN on Wednesday, June 21, 2017.
Health Service Providers' Annual Planning Submissions and Accountability Agreements
On April 1, 2007 the LHINs assumed full responsibility for planning, funding and integrating health services. This includes developing and negotiating Service Accountability Agreements with providers from all sectors including hospitals, multi sector agencies and the long-term care home sector.
Using the current funding model called HSFR (Health System Funding Reform), Ontario's health care system has moved away from a global funding system towards what is now known as Patient-Based Funding.

From the beginning of HSFR implementation in 2012-13, the Central East LHIN has pursued the strategic objective of moving Ontario’s health care system away from global funding towards an equitable and sustainable funding model that will also standardize care, minimize practice variation and encourage investments in quality improvement and patient safety.
