Health System Accountability
Through the development and execution of Service Accountability Agreements with our health service providers, and through the Ministry-LHIN Performance Agreements with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, LHINs enhance system accountability for public funds. These agreements set out funding and performance deliverables for local services that are aligned with LHIN and Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care priorities.
For 2018-19, Central LHIN has 99 Service Accountability Agreements across all sectors and providers. Ultimately, these agreements support system collaboration to enhance stability and accountability in the health system. They also help us to build a better local health care system – one that emphasizes quality care for people and their families and is delivered within available resources.

As health system planners, part of Central LHIN's role is to work with local health service providers to develop a framework for accountability that encourages transparency and ensures the best possible quality of care is available to all residents in the Central LHIN region.
The accountability agreements below outline the responsibilities of local health service providers and the LHIN, set activity and financial targets, detail expectations for ongoing development and service delivery and provide benchmarks so that providers and the LHIN can measure performance year over year.
