Resource Library

The Resource Library is structured to provide insight into the whole spectrum of health system integration in Ontario and to help you zero in quickly on what you need. Its sections move from the context to the final steps of integration.

Government Directives

This section will help you understand the context of health system integration in Ontario by providing key directives from Ontario government ministries, Local Health Integration Networks and other levels of government.


Making Integration Work

An overview of the many different kinds of integration that you can pursue, from simply sharing an accountant to actually merging with another organization, plus case studies and reports to provide the perspective you need to make the best integration decisions for your organization.


Connecting with Other Organizations

Who is out there to collaborate with? What existing constellations could you tap into? This section offers integration maps of existing networks in every LHIN and links to lists of the different types of health organizations.


Tools for Transformation

It’s one thing to agree on an integration plan in principle — it’s another to implement structural transformation and manage the process. Look at this section before you finalize your integration plan: it will help you to understand how integration can impact many aspects of an organization, from governance to human resources, and how you can best manage all those changes.
