Other Publications

Our intent at Health Quality Ontario is to continuously improve the quality of health care in this province. We can help do this by making the best scientific evidence available to health organizations, providers, patients and families in comprehensive recommendations and reports.

Our evidence-based recommendations and reports review a variety of important health interventions including diagnostic tests, devices, procedures, health care programs and models of care. They are shared with the provincial government, health care organizations, providers and patients in order to inform a variety of decisions, including which health care services are publicly funded.

If you have questions about a recommendation or report, please contact us at
