I have noted several Ontario LHINs are actively using the Internet to inform and engage their communities. The SouthEast LHIN, for example, provides a tool for registering your interest in various topics so that they can send an email notification when there is a new announcement regarding these topics. Check out:
One of the topic areas for which you can register to get news is board meetings. A complete agenda, supporting documentation, and board minutes are provided. There is some very interesting reading in the board meeting minutes. I applaud their efforts to be open and transparent.
Another initiative comes from the SouthWest LHIN (hmmmmm …. LHINs with the South in their name seem to be reaching out). Julie White (Twitter handle – GET_ENGAGED), Director of Communications & Customer Service, is actively using Twitter to post announcement regarding events and other items of interest.
If you are aware of any other similar LHIN initiatives please let me know and I’ll post information about them on this blog.
