Quality Improvement is an ongoing priority that helps us continually find new and better ways of providing services, delivering care, improving the patient experience and achieve even better clinical outcomes.

In June 2010, the Ontario government passed The Excellent Care for All Act (ECFAA). This legislation helps support hospitals to further improve the quality and safety of care they provide for our community. The legislation requires Ontario hospitals to create and make public an annual Quality Improvement Plan (QIP).

Temiskaming Hospital’s Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) continues to build upon our commitment to delivering safe, quality patient-centered care and is a meaningful way to clearly articulate our accountability to our community, patients and staff. With this plan, we are able to document and review our current performance in a variety of areas, identify areas of improvement and monitor our performance.

Our Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) is made up of two parts:

  1. A document that provides a brief overview of our QIP, highlighting and listing our hospital’s top priorities for the year.
    Not applicable for 2021-22
  2. A spreadsheet that includes our improvement targets and initiatives. The spreadsheet includes a core set of indicators used by all hospitals across the province.

 *Although Health Quality Ontario paused the quality improvement plans due to COVID, Temiskaming Hospital continued with the implementation of targets and measures for 2020-21 with an extension and adjusted targets for 2021-22.
