Long-Term Care Practice Reports give physicians in the sector access to personalized and confidential information about their practice, provincial-level data and other relevant comparators, as well as contextual information and change ideas to help drive quality improvement. The data is updated every three months and made available to physicians who sign up for this program.

Yes, the data in the report is both confidential and secure. The Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences (ICES) is named as a prescribed entity under Section 45 of Ontario’s health privacy legislation, Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA), 2004, which provides the legal authority for ICES to conduct research about practice patterns. Consent is required to have data released from ICES to Health Quality Ontario to generate the reports. Data is at the aggregate-level for the physician or region, therefore no patient-level data is received or reported. Data will not be released except to those consenting to receive it.
No patient health data are stored at Health Quality Ontario. Provider data stored at Health Quality Ontario to prepare the reports are stored on a secure server with limited staff access. In addition, reports will only be available to a physician via Health Quality Ontario’s secure online portal after the physician has validated their identity.

The Long-Term Care Practice Report was created by Health Quality Ontario with data provided by the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences.
The report is part of the Appropriate Prescribing Long-Term Care Demonstration Project. The Demonstration Project is conducted by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and Ontario Medical Association in collaboration with Health Quality Ontario and the Centre for Effective Practice. This project’s primary objective is to design a sustainable approach to supporting best practices in prescribing, starting in long-term care homes.
To learn more about the Appropriate Prescribing Demonstration Project, please email the Ministry at firstname.lastname@example.org or the Ontario Medical Association at email@example.com.
