Home and community care services and staff transferred from Community Care Access Centres (CCACs) to Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs). Home and community care services are provided through Ontario’s 14 LHINs. LHINs plan, integrate and fund local health care and deliver and coordinate home and community care as well.
The information below is still valid. We will update the content soon to reflect the new role of the LHINs.
Health Partner Gateway
The Health Partner Gateway (HPG) provides a single electronic solution to securely exchange health information between a LHIN and its partners. It has been built to interoperate with longer term e-health initiatives and to enable partner access to health information held within LHIN tools and applications such as the Client Health and Related Information System (CHRIS).
The Health Partner Gateway (HPG) makes it simple to share information between LHIN and their health partners, in a safe and secure way.
