To facilitate negotiation of the Hospital Service Accountability Agreements (HSAAs), each Provider is required to submit a planning document known as the Hospital Accountability Planning Submission (HAPS). The HAPS, with the HSAA, form the basis of a multi-year funding and planning framework.

This framework supports the province’s efforts to enhance stability and accountability of the health system by providing a more sustainable financial footing and facilitating alignment of the provision of health services across health sectors and in line with Ministry and LHIN priorities.

HAPS Guidelines describe how the hospitals and LHIN will work to deliver on the overarching strategy of designing and delivering hospital services that enable the provision of high quality, safe, accessible and sustainable hospital care within the resources available.

The LHIN and hospitals are encouraged to keep this strategy in mind as the planning process evolves.

If you have questions, please contact your assigned LHIN Accountability Specialist.
