Quality Improvement Plan (QIP)

In 2010, the Ontario Government passed the Excellent Care for All Act (ECFAA), laying the foundation for a unified committment to a shared vision for quality in Ontario where the needs of the patients come first. 

T
he legislation requires that every health care organization (currently defined under the Public Hospitals Act) develop an annual quality improvement plan and make it available to the public. For more information please visit: www.ontario.ca/excellentcare.
 
2018-2019 Quality Improvement Plan (QIP)
 
Our Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) takes an in-depth and systematic approach to setting improvement targets and developing change initiatives. Our QIP also highlights key strategies for quality improvement and is a key component of our comprehensive quality program.

We have placed patients at the core of our strategies to create consistently exceptional patient experiences, while working to enhance the safety and effectiveness of our organization through innovative and focused practices.
 
How to Read the Quality Improvement Plan:

Our QIP is made up of two parts:
  1. A document that provides a brief overview of our quality improvement plan, highlighting and listing our hospital’s top priorities for the year (also called a short form or narrative).
  2. A spreadsheet that includes our improvement targets and initiatives. Health Quality Ontario (HQO) has requested that all similar hospitals report on a series of core indicators to support province-wide comparisons. The core indicators that apply to our hospital are reflected in our QIP. Not all indicators apply to all hospitals since some organizations do not meet the reporting threshold. In these cases, you will see "N/A".
