Health Quality Ontario (HQO) has launched the priorities for the 2020/21 Quality Improvement Plans (QIPs).
The 2019/20 QIPs prioritized three core themes: timely and efficient transitions, service excellence, and safe and effective care. These themes remain key priorities and align with the Quadruple Aim of improving the patient and caregiver experience, improving the health of populations, reducing the per-capita cost of health care, and improving the work life of providers. These themes are also consistent with the priorities of the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Long-Term Care.
Therefore, only minor changes were made to the QIP priorities for 2020/21. QIPs will continue to be submitted by individual organizations to Health Quality Ontario (soon to become part of Ontario Health) and will be due by April 1, 2020.
