The Excellent Care for All Act (E.C.F.A.A.) 2010 requires public hospitals, primary health care organizations, home care sector and Long Term Care homes to create a Quality Improvement Plan based on the Health Quality Ontario (HQO) Quality Agenda.  The QIP is submitted to HQO and the North East Local Health Integrated Network (NELHIN) annually on April 1st.  All QIPs are publically posted at HQO QIP Navigator Website (https://qipnavigator.hqontario.ca/Resources/PostedQIPs.aspx).

 

What is a Quality Improvement Plan (QIP)?

A QIP is a health care organization’s formal plan to improve the care they provide to patient and their care givers.  Each year, HQO asks the organizations that submit QIPS to focus on a handful of key quality issues that are priorities in Ontario.

 

What does a QIP look like?

There are three parts to a QIP:

  1. The Progress Report: A report on progress from the precious’s year’s plan.
  2. The Narrative: A brief summary of the plan
  3. The Workplan (the plan itself) which includes:

    • The indicators that the organization will be working on
    • Current performance of indicator
    • Goal Targets
    • Change Ideas for improvement

 

Kirkland and Englehart Hospital’s Quality Improvement plan is approved by the Quality Committee of the Board of Directors. To read more about our QIP, please click on the following links:
