Vendor 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. The role of the vendor is to support the HSP through implementation, validation, testing and Go Live.

Information contained within this section provides validation guides, checklists, and implementation toolkits to enable vendors to conduct system and integration testing.
