In April Health Quality Ontario received 1,024 Quality Improvement Plans (QIPs) from hospitals, primary care organizations, long-term care homes, and LHIN home and community care services across Ontario. All of the 2019/20 QIPs are now available on QIP Navigator.
You can use the Download QIPs tool to download the full QIP of any organization, or use the Query QIPs tool to search all submitted QIPs for a key word or indicator of interest. These tools are a great way to find out what organizations in your area are working on this year or read about the lessons organizations have learned during their efforts to address the key quality issues targeted by the QIPs.
Another source for ideas and inspiration is Quorum, Health Quality Ontario’s health care quality improvement community. You can browse the new Indicators & Change Ideas page to explore and comment on approaches to improvement for this year’s QIP indicators, or search for the QIP tag to read spotlight stories and interviews related to the QIPs.
It’s clear from initial observations on the 2019/20 QIPs that organizations are focusing their efforts on the three critical themes of timely and efficient transitions, service excellence, and safe and effective care. If you or your team have any questions about the QIPs or about Health Quality Ontario’s quality improvement resources, please contact QIP@HQOntario.ca.
