Quality Improvement

Guides, Tools and Practice Reports

Woman with doctor

Physicians and administrators in Ontario are dedicated to quality improvement, however, they do not always have the comparable regional and provincial data they need to inform their quality improvement efforts.

To help address this gap, Health Quality Ontario created customized reports for the primary care, long term care and hospital sectors. Using existing administrative health databases, these confidential reports give physicians data about their practice, and share change ideas to help drive quality improvement.

Currently three types of Practice Reports are available. To sign up or to learn more, please visit the links below:
