Excellent Care for All Act (ECFAA), also known as Bill 46, came into effect in June 8, 2010. It ensures Ontarians receive healthcare of the highest quality possible. Hospitals across Ontario are required to develop and make public an annual Quality Improvement Plan.
What is a Quality Improvement Plan?
A Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) is all about improvement. It provides an opportunity for organizations to focus on how and what to improve, in the name of better patient-focused care. As such, it is a unique document, designed by, and for, each individual organization. Overall, a QIP should be seen as a tool, providing a structured format and common language that focuses an organization on change. The QIP will drive change by formalizing a plan and facilitating shared dialogue to support continuous quality improvement processes. The QIP also provides the means for the Alliance to communicate accountability and transparency to the public, patients, and staff.
Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance is focused on creating a positive patient experience and delivering high quality and safe health care.
The guidance document for completing the report can be accessed from the Ministry's website.
