Measure – Change – Improve: Better Surgical Care in Ontario

Dr. Joshua Tepper and Dr. Tim Jackson

Simply measuring quality doesn’t make health care better. But transforming that data into opportunities for improvement can have a very real impact on patients and their health and safety.

This is demonstrated in the recent Quality Surgery: Improving Surgical Care in Ontario report released by Health Quality Ontario.

Improving Safety and Quality for Surgery Patients

Dr. Tim Jackson

During their time in the operating room and in the days of recovery that follow, surgical patients are vulnerable and their safety is of prime importance. It should come as no surprise then that health organizations and providers in Ontario have turned to a proven program of data gathering, program enhancements and culture change to improve the quality of the care they provide to surgery patients.
