HSP Implementation

Community Business Intelligence is available to Health Service Providers (HSPs) in three sectors; Community Mental Health (CMH), Community Addiction (CA), and Community Support Services (CSS). The CBI tool collects information from an HSPs client management system (CMS) into a central data repository. From there, individual and aggregate level reports are available to the LHIN and HSPs.

Implementation tools, guidelines and supports

The following materials are available for HSPs preparing to upload data to the CBI. They are grouped into three areas of interest: Implementation Guidelines, Contract Information and Testing and Validation.

Implementation Guidelines

HSP CBI Implementation Toolkit
The toolkit gives HSPs detailed information for uploading Client Management System (CMS) data to the CBI repository. The CBI tool is built and implemented by the HSPs CMS vendor. The vendor assists the HSP with processes including testing, validation, and Go Live (i.e., submitting real client data to the CBI data repository).

Implementation Kick-off
The Implementation Kickoff PowerPoint presentation summarizes the base elements for the project and other project planning activities. A meeting held with HSPs to review the kick off material outlines the project’s scope and objectives, a technical summary, privacy and security, and provides an implementation overview.
