Board of Directors (Volunteer), Thehealthline.ca Information Network

London, Ontario
Deadline April 30, 2017

Help Make Health Care Information More Accessible For All
Become a Member of Our Volunteer Board of Directors

Thehealthline.ca Information Network seeks four committed and experienced volunteers to serve on an expanded policy governing Board of Directors.

Who We Are

Thehealthline.ca Information Network is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping consumers and providers navigate the complex healthcare system, so that people get the care they need, when and where they need it. In 2016 we celebrated the fifteenth anniversary of launching our flagship service, http://www.thehealthline.ca.

Beginning as a London and region database of health and social services, thehealthline.ca has grown to encompass service records covering all of Ontario. Today there are more than 45,000 service profiles representing 26,000 health and social service organizations. Thehealthline.ca consists of 14 regional web sites aligned with the borders of Ontario’s Local Health Integration Networks and one provincial portal. For a full list of our projects and collaborations, visit http://informationnetwork.thehealthline.ca/14/Collaborations/. 

The Network has succeeded by being creative, flexible, and collaborative. We are innovators in data collection, maintenance and sharing. Our funding results from a number of public sector contracts and totals nearly 1.8M annually.

Our Vision

Connecting people to the right information and care to help them stay healthy and get well.

Our Mission

To develop and maintain databases of health and social service information, and make them available through web portal(s) and other media, with the following goals:

  • To improve consumers’ access to people, services and information
  • To improve efficiency and effectiveness, and support innovation of service providers
  • To enhance the accountability and sustainability of health and social services systems

Who We’re Looking For

The ideal candidates will come from across the province of Ontario, have previous board experience (preferably with Ontario based non profits or health and social service sector organizations), and expertise in one or more of the following areas:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Financial Management
  • Government Relations
  • E-Health and Information Technology
  • Board Governance
  • Sustainability Planning

  • A resident of Ontario
  • Able to attend (in person or by teleconference) four to six two-hour meetings per year (in person, or via telephone or video conference)

Why Now?

Thehealthline.ca Information Network has enjoyed consistent growth and stability over its 15 year history. As a growing organization with a committed and accomplished staff now offering services province-wide, our Board of Directors must represent the geography of the province as well as the changing health and social services landscape. We’re an important part of Ontario’s health care system and a trusted source of information for thousands of Ontarians each day. We’re looking for leaders to ensure we continue to play this critical role.
