Annual Service Plan Q1 2023 Reporting
In 2018, the Ontario Ministry of Health (MOH) introduced a new Annual Service Plan (ASP) that Health Units are required to submit each year. In order to ensure a single, integrated approach to planning, the Planning and Strategic Initiatives (PSI) department worked with the Information Technology (IT) department to align our planning system with the provincial requirements.
With the support of PSI, staff members develop and enter their annual work plans which are then reviewed and approved by the leadership team and integrated in the WECHU’s Annual Service Plan for the Ministry.
Annual Service Plan (ASP) Submission
WECHU’s 2023 Annual Service Plan was submitted to the MOH on April 3rd, 2023. The plan provides details about planned expenditures and program plans for 2023.
Planning for 2024
The PSI and IT departments have begun to incorporate changes from the 2023 ASP template and reporting requirements, as well as the feedback received from managers and staff, into the planning approach for 2024. It is anticipated that the next planning cycle will be launched in mid-summer.
