Quality Improvement Plans (QIPs) at CMH
Quality improvement plans (QIPs) are an opportunity for organizations to focus on how and what to improve, in the name of better patient-focused care.
Overall, a QIP should be seen as a tool, providing a structured format and common language that focuses an organization on change. The QIP drives change by formalizing a plan and facilitating shared dialogue to support continuous quality improvement processes.
Quality improvement plans are legislative requirements. The Excellent Care For All Act, fosters a culture of continuous quality improvement in health care, where the needs of patients come first.
The Excellent Care for All Act requires that every year, health care organizations develop a Quality Improvement Plan for the following fiscal year and make that plan available to the public. The expectation is for organizations to have QIPs in place, publicly posted, and submitted to the Ontario Health Quality Council for the fiscal year beginning April 1, 2011.
