Quality Improvement Plan 17/18
Sunnybrook is on a continuous journey of quality improvement — employing new evidence-based practices and processes so that we can continue to provide the highest quality care for our patients and their families.
Our Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) is one of the tools we use to track our performance in a selection of high-priority areas, including patient safety, timely access to effective care and building an integrated health system with our community partners. This plan represents our ongoing commitment to achieve and lead in system-wide quality and safety best practices that improve patient experiences and outcomes, and also provides accountability for reaching the highest possible quality and value for health care in Ontario.
Each year, as part of the Excellent Care for All Act (2010) we publicly post our Quality Improvement Plan and submit it to the provincial government so they can track improvement performance across the system. We believe it is important for the many communities we serve across the province to see how we are meeting their needs by delivering excellent care. As a component of each quality improvement plan, teams have outlined how they will engage patients and families in their quality improvement work in 2017/18. If you’d like to provide input into this plan, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to read the Quality Improvement Plan
Our Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) is made up of three parts:
- Narrative: A brief overview of our quality strategic goals and the areas of focus in the Quality Improvement Plan.
- Work Plan: A detailed spreadsheet that describes our improvement plans and targets, and includes indicators recommended by Health Quality Ontario and others we've identified as a priority.
- Progress Report on QIP 16/17: A progress report outlining our performance and the progress we've made to date on our targets and initiatives from the previous year.
Our QIP is only one of the ways we are working to improve our patients' experiences. To learn more, see our Balanced Scorecard & Patient Safety Indicators.
