System Performance

Frequently Asked Questions

Health Quality Ontario uses quality indicators to monitor how well Ontario’s health system is performing.

For example, one indicator might describe the percentage of patients who, after leaving hospital, were admitted again.

While this one indicator will not give us all the information we need to understand why that percentage of people returned to hospital, by looking at this measure with other indicators it can point to areas where health care providers can make changes to provide better care.
