On October 6, 2016, Dr. Eric Hoskins, Ontario's Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, introduced Bill 41, Patients First Act, 2016. Bill 41, which became law on Dec. 8, 2016, repealed the Community Care Access Corporations Act, 2001, and made amendments to the Local Health System Integration Act, 2006 (LHSIA) and various other statutes, enabling the government to move ahead with its plan to strengthen patient-centred care in Ontario.
A regulation under LHSIA (O. Reg. 456/16) integrated three pre-existing organizations, the Ontario Association of Community Care Access Centres (OACCAC), the Local Health Integration Network Shared Services Office (LSSO) and the Local Health Integration Network Collaborative (LHINC) into Health Shared Services Ontario (HSSO). A Crown Agency, HSSO is a stand-alone entity that supports Ontario's Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) in the integration and delivery of home and community care across the province.
HSSO is focused on enhancing and improving care. In the interests of full transparency, past annual reports can be viewed in this archive. These annual reports showcase the innovative programs, solutions and services pioneered during the evolution of home and community care in Ontario. They also highlight excellence in integrated care and the delivery of enhanced quality, accountability and health outcomes for Ontarians.
