What is Health Quality

Quality Matters: A Plan for Health Care Quality

Every provider, patient and policy maker wants to ensure excellent care for all – but how exactly do we put quality into action?

To help turn good intentions into reality Quality Matters: Realizing Excellent Care For All is a report articulating a vision for health quality in Ontario and a definition grounded in six domains of quality.

A one-page summary of our report is designed to stimulate discussion, share with colleagues and hang in offices, units and clinics across the system.

Quality Matters is about a just, patient-centred health system committed to ongoing improvement.
