Supplemental Data Collection
The Toronto Central LHIN is looking to address health challenges locally by engaging people and providers at the sub-region level to co-design solutions that will have the most impact possible across the Toronto Central LHIN.
In order to gather this information, we need your help to create a dynamic data-set that will be a valuable resource for us all in the future. Through recent engagements, community providers have identified that they need a clear a clear sight line into the current services available at the community level.
Once the database is complete, the Toronto Central LHIN aims to leverage this health service information to inform future planning opportunities and empower providers across the LHIN to come together to address common challenges and opportunities to better serve Torontonians.
What is the data collection about?
Our goal is to help improve access, navigation and communications for patients. To start, we need to know what services are currently available and where. This information will also be a valuable resource to providers, to better understand services available locally and to the LHIN for planning purposes to help us all to better serve the needs of our local communities.
What are the benefits of the data collection?
Service level of information – indicating a provider’s sites in the community with hours of operation and services/programs offered – is not currently available in one data source across the LHIN.
When will the data collection be taking place?
Data collection will be launched in February with the aim to have all providers complete this by March 17th.
In addition, a walk-in session at Toronto Central LHIN offices, has been planned for 15th February, 2017 - by appointment only. Appointments can be scheduled by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
Where will this information be used?
Over the fiscal year 2017-18 the Toronto Central LHIN will begin to share the data results with providers locally and internally for planning initiatives. We aim to have a public facing resource available next year.
Why should you participate in the data collection?
High quality service data at the community level has been a gap identified by providers, health planners and the public. This information will give the LHIN a clear sightline into the service capacity within a neighborhood and help bring providers together to address common challenges and opportunities.
In an effort to make completing the data collection as easy as possible, pre-existing service data already collected from HSP’s (drawn from provider M-SAAs, your corporate website and existing LHIN databases including our Community Business Intelligence tool) will be prepopulated in the database for you to verify and build upon.
