1. 2014-17 Multi-Sector Service Accountability Agreement (M-SAA) An Overview
2. What is an M-SAA? Core lever for HSP accountability and performance management A tool to bring all the various contractual agreements between community HSPs and the LHINs into one document Required under LHSIA and Ministry-LHIN Performance Agreement (MLPA) A vehicle to delineate accountabilities and performance expectations A mechanism to clarify that the HSP will be responsible for performance as well as planning and integration towards the development of a health system 2
3. Pan-LHIN Development, Local Execution Developing provincial templates for local execution Consistent template agreement for all community sector HSPs developed through comprehensive consultation with HSP associations and member representatives. 3 Schedules for each sub-sector (CCAC, CHC, MH&A and CSS) developed through consultation with sub-sectors Individual LHINs negotiate performance indicator targets with each HSP in alignment with pan- LHIN guidelines
4. M-SAA Structure Comprehensive Consultation through Multiple Tables 4 M-SAA Advisory Committee ( see slide 7 for membership) M-SAA Indicators Work Group ( see Appendix 1 for membership) M-SAA Planning & Schedules Work Group ( see Appendix 1 for membership) M-SAA INDICATOR SUPPORT : HEALTH SYSTEM INDICATOR INITIATIVE M-SAA LEGAL COUNSEL SUPPORT: LHIN LEGAL SERVICES BRANCH M-SAA SECRETARIAT SUPPORT: LHIN COLLABORATIVE LOCAL M-SAA IMPLEMENTATION: LHIN M-SAA LEADS
5. LHIN/HSP Accountability Relationship How do the various CAPS/M-SAA components fit together? 5 Community Accountability Planning Submission (CAPS) Multi-sector Service Accountability Agreement (M-SAA) Quarterly Reports [Ontario Healthcare Report Standards (MIS)] Remediation Negotiation, Implementation of Consequences Planning Commitment Measurement Adjustment Negotiations/Consultations Negotiations
6. LHIN/Sector Responsibilities What are the responsibilities of the LHINs and the HSPs? LHINs are responsible for: Training and supporting HSPs through the CAPS and M-SAA processes Negotiating performance targets within the context of a provincial framework Monitoring the achievement of specific performance goals under the M-SAA and ongoing performance management HSPs are responsible for: Ensuring governance and operations that support high quality care Promoting leading performance improvement approaches Providing access to high quality health services and coordinated health care in an effective and efficient manner Identifying integration opportunities and engaging the public and stakeholders in any planned service changes. 6
7. Process for Finalizing New M-SAA At a high level, how was the M-SAA developed and finalized? 7 LHINs revised language in the 2011-14 M-SAA that required updating or would benefit from greater clarity as a draft 2014-17 M-SAA for sector feedback. 175 sector comments received and individually addressed. Committee endorsed 2014-17 M-SAA and Schedules on December 17, 2013. Pan-LHIN commitment to reduce, align and enhance consistency of local indicators. Committee will continued to meet throughout the life of the agreement to advance M-SAA related priority issues.
8. Summary of Main Changes What are the key changes between current and new M-SAA? 8 REFERENCE DIFFERENCE REASON FOR CHANGE General Update A variety of changes were made to correct minor errors in references, use of defined terms, conformance and formatting. To correct inadvertent errors and typographical errors. 1.1 Definitions Revised Board definition. Added controlling shareholder definition. Added and volunteers to definition of HSPs Personnel. Some long-term care homes have M-SAAs. The changes recognize that committees of management and boards of management are sometimes the ultimate authority, as opposed to boards of directors, for some long-term care homes. Controlling shareholder appears in the definition for HSPs Personnel. A definition was provided for controlling shareholders in order to be clear on who is captured. It is only relevant to HSPs that have controlling shareholders. Volunteers and students are under the control of the HSP, no differently as regards the LHIN, than any of the HSP's paid staff or other agents. 3.2 Subcontracting Changed to enhance clarity. This provision clarifies that the HSP may hire others to provide the Services on the HSPs behalf and states the terms on which they can do so. 3.4 e- Health/Information Technology Compliance Changed to conform to the LHINs obligations under the MLPA. LHSIA requires that LHINs provide their funding to HSPs in accordance with the LHINs accountability agreement with the Ministry (i.e. the MLPA). These changes are therefore required to conform to the LHINs obligations under the MLPA. 4.3 Appropriation Deleted the specific actions that a LHIN may take. This provision reflects the Financial Administration Act and the change was made to eliminate any implied notion that the LHIN is limited in terms of what actions it can take in the event that there is no appropriation of funds.
9. Summary of Main Changes Continued What are the key changes between current and new M-SAA? 9 REFERENCE DIFFERENCE REASON FOR CHANGE 4.6 Interest Adjusted language to incorporate flexibility. This section has been revised to incorporate flexibility into this requirement. 4.8 Procurement of Goods and Services Changed to enhance clarity. The M-SAA requires HSPs to abide by all Applicable Law and Applicable Policy. To clarify the obligations, Section 4.8(a) has been revised to by inserting the phrase that are applicable to the HSP pursuant to the BPSAA. 6.1(c)(D) Multi-Year Planning Targets Changed to reflect that LHINs typically consult with an HSP on changes multi-year planning targets. Changes to multi-year planning targets should be addressed at the local LHIN level. HSPs should discuss this issue with their local LHIN and ask for the appropriate assumptions for planning purposes. 6.3(a)(ii) Planning and Integration Activity Pre-Proposal Changed to enhance clarity such that the obligation captures the notion of physical change. The LHINs are responsible for possible impacts to the health system of service changes and need to be made aware of changes to service delivery for health system planning purposes. In addition, this provision gives the LHIN the opportunity to review, evaluate and provide input into the HSP's plan, rather than being limited to stopping all or part of the plan. 8.1(d) Declaration of Compliance Changed to once per year and revised due date. Changed frequency to once per year and revised date to factor in time for HSPs to reconcile finances and close books before submitting declaration of compliance. The obligation now reads Within 90 days of the HSPs fiscal year-end. 9.2(b) Acknowledgment of Funding Support Added to conform to Ontarios Visual Identity Directives. Ontario and LHIN logos are strictly governed by Provincial policy. The provision in the M-SAA reflects what is required by Ontarios Visual Identity Directives.
10. Summary of Main Changes Continued What are the key changes between current and new M-SAA? 10 REFERENCE DIFFERENCE REASON FOR CHANGE 10.3(b) Governance Definition of compensation award added for clarity. The wording of the provision states that the compensation award is linked to the CEOs performance and a definition has been added in this regard. 10.4(c) Funding, Services and Reporting Revised to reflect materiality. Language has been added to incorporate notion of materiality. 11 Limitation of Liability, Indemnity & Insurance The insurance provisions have been significantly amended with input from the sector. The insurance provisions have been updated to reflect sector specific risk. 12.2(a) Termination by the HSP Revised to reflect circumstances where an HSP may require the ability to exit the Agreement on short notice. Section 12.2(a) has been revised by inserting "(or such shorter period as may be agreed by the HSP and the LHIN)". 12.4(b) Consequences of Termination Deleted to incorporate flexibility Section 12.4(b) has been deleted to incorporate flexibility into process. 14.3 Terms and Conditions on Any Consent Adjusted language to reflect reasonableness. The LHINs are always obligated to act reasonably and fairly in making its decisions and they do so. 14.8 No Assignment Added language to enhance clarity This section now states no assignment or subcontract shall relieve the HSP from its obligations under this Agreement or impose any liability upon the LHIN to any assignee or subcontractor.
11. Performance Indicators Health System Indicators Initiative (HSII) In April 2010, the LHIN-led HSII was established to create a coordinated, system-based approach to indicator identification, development, maintenance and reporting. Central to the mandate of HSII is the close collaboration with provincial and national partners in order to leverage their organizational expertise related to indicator development, benchmarking, data extraction, and analysis. The revised mandate introduced in September 2013 provides a greater focus on alignment to system priorities, advancing system performance improvement through the SAAs and other mechanisms, and enabling monitoring and reporting. The M-SAA Indicators Work Group is accountable to the M-SAA Advisory Committee through the HSII Executive Group, comprised of 3 LHIN Senior Directors. 11
12. Performance Indicators (Schedule E) Pan-LHIN Performance Indicators and LHIN-Specific Obligations The Performance Schedule (Schedule E) contains the following two indicator sections: 1. Pan-LHIN Indicators are developed through the M-SAA Indicators Work Group through HSII (core indicators are relevant to all LHINs and all community sector HSPs; sector-specific indicators are only relevant to a specified sector). Performance Indicators are measures of HSP performance for which a Performance Target is set; Technical specifications of specific Performance Indicators can be found in the M-SAA 2014-17 Indicator Technical Specifications document. Explanatory Indicators are measures of HSP performance for which no Performance Target is set. Technical specifications of specific Explanatory Indicators can be found in the M-SAA 2014-17 Indicator Technical Specifications document. 2. LHIN-Specific Performance Obligations : A section where each LHIN adds specific performance objectives and obligations for their HSPs is included. LHINs are committed to minimizing any undue burden placed on providers with respect to performance management by focusing on a limited number of outcome indicators aligned with local priorities. 12
13. Performance Indicators Why Performance Standards? All performance indicators have an associated target and standard of performance. Variance outside of the standard triggers the performance management processes in Article 7 of the M-SAA. The LHIN or the HSP can identify a Performance Factor that could or will significantly affect a partys ability to fulfill its obligations under the Agreement. The identification of a Performance Factor is made formally, in writing, to the other party and will include a description of the Factors actual or anticipated impact and a description of any action the party is undertaking, or plans to undertake, to remedy or mitigate the Performance Factor. 13
14. Performance Indicators Continued How are Indicator Targets and Corridors Determined? Following the submission of the CAPS, LHINs and HSPs discuss indicator targets that are appropriate to each organization and its local circumstances. Targets are expected to reflect performance and drive continuous improvement. To complete the targets and corridors for the performance indicators, the following principles will be employed: Where provincial targets and corridors exist, the LHINs and HSPs will take these into consideration Where appropriate, use past experience from M-SAA and MLPA indicators Incorporate analyses of historical variation to inform corridor recommendations Use % range for financial and volume indicators 14
15. Performance Management How are Performance Factors Addressed? 15 How a LHIN chooses to deal with an indicator outside the corridor depends on a number of factors, including: What is the realized and/or potential impact on the clients served? Is this the first blip on an otherwise clean performance record? Is this a unique event and unlikely to recur? Are other areas of the organization or other HSPs affected? What is the LHINs confidence in the HSPs ability to manage performance going ahead? Depending on the above, the LHIN could choose to start with a less formal tact. The formal process is always available...and can be triggered at any point.
