Quality of Care

Quality Improvement Plan (QIP)

The Excellent Care for All Act (ECFAA), which came into law in June of 2010, puts Ontario patients first by strengthening the health care sector's organizational focus and accountability to deliver high quality patient care. ECFAA is based on strategic directions that exemplify good governance and high quality patient care.  The Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) was established to assist hospitals across the province to outline priorities for quality improvement and strategies for implementation.  The QIP is submitted to Health Quality Ontario annually on or before April 1st.
