Excellence in Care for All Ontarians
Health Quality Ontario works with its partners across the province to create a health system that embraces continuous improvement and embodies quality care as a core value.
Through the collaborative work of quality improvement leads in every Local Health Integration Network region, a culture of quality is being fostered.
The ultimate goal of creating a culture of quality that is more consistent and equitable across the province is to improve the care experiences of all patients.
A more coordinated, integrated and systematic approach to improving quality across the province is being achieved through the work of:
Regional Local Health Integration Networks – plan, integrate and fund local health care across 14 regions, improving access and patient experience.
Regional Quality Tables – bring together health system leaders in each region. They were created to address local quality challenges and issues, and to ensure alignment between regional and provincial quality priorities.
Regional Quality Sessions – regional events that bring together regional leaders in quality improvement to support collaboration across the whole health system. They inspire creativity and information sharing.
Health Links – an approach to care for patients with chronic conditions and complex needs that focuses on enhancing care coordination. Health Links is an example of successful regional collaboration between Health Quality Ontario, Local Health Integration Networks and system partners.
