Engaging Physicians in LHIN Processes

Physicians, while not funded by the Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs), play an integral role in health service delivery. Engaging physicians in LHIN processes is paramount to achieving improved linkages between primary care and the rest of the health system. To support achievement of outcomes LHINs have used a variety of approaches to engage with physicians. LHINs recognize that effective engagement is a strong enabler to creating an integrated health system and better experiences for patients in Ontario.
