For further details on more specific enhancements please see CAPS Reference Overview document
Enhancements for Future Consideration
Many great ideas for improving the CAPS have been received
from Health Service Providers, LHINs, and the Ministry of
Health and Long-Term Care.
The LHIN SRI Reports Working Group has been cautious in
considering major changes to the CAPS given that using SRI is
new territory and already represents a significant improvement
to the process from the previous year
Pre-population of other historical data may be possible in the
Enhancements for Future Consideration
It is intended that the CAPS process is a one-time exercise
covering 3 fiscal years
The file will be redeveloped for 2015-16 and 2016-17 to allow
LHINs and HSPs to refresh planning targets, if the LHIN chooses
to do so or if it is required.
The LHIN SRI Reports Working Group will be soliciting feedback
on further enhancements from Health Service Providers, LHINs,
and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care for consideration
well in advance of this next release
Data Quality
The ongoing quarterly reporting of accurate financial and
statistical data is essential to the management of performance
Accurate historical performance data is crucial to inform target
setting and negotiations following the submission of the CAPS
Quality data informs an effective, efficient, and equitable basis
for directing future investments, it assists Health Service
Providers to improve client outcomes, and supports evidencedbased evaluation
