Quality Improvement Plans in Primary Care: Moving Forward on a Common Quality Agenda

February 28, 2013

Ontario’s Action Plan for Health Care highlights a focus on quality in primary care. An essential element of Ontario’s health care transformation agenda is the introduction of Quality Improvement Plans (QIPs) to the primary health care sector. The QIP provides a significant opportunity for health care organizations to move the provincial quality agenda forward. Through the QIP, organizations express their commitment to a health care system that is patient/client centred and illustrate how they will be actively engaged in improving the quality of care Ontarians receive.

Health Quality Ontario is hosting a series of webinars to help you understand: the role of the QIP as a tool for driving organizational quality, who should be engaged in quality improvement planning in your organization, and how to effectively use indicators and collected data to understand your starting point and monitor improvement over time.

Please share this invitation with your organization, members and anyone you think that would benefit from these webinars.
