What is the purpose of MyPractice Reports?
Health Quality Ontario (HQO) provides confidential MyPractice reports to physicians and surgeons to aid in quality improvement. These reports provide personalized data and suggested ideas of improvement for physicians and surgeons to support practice and quality improvement across the province. Some examples are the reports for physicians and surgeons working in hospital, primary care or long-term care. For more information about the MyPractice reports, please go to http://www.hqontario.ca/Quality-Improvement/Guides-Tools-and-Practice-Reports.
What data is involved?
MyPractice reports provide cross-sectional, longitudinal, and comparator data relevant to physicians and surgeons. These are personalized data specific to the physician/surgeon and include different aspects of their practice and may include data on a physician’s/surgeon’s prescribing patterns, patients’ demographics, case mix, and other quality metrics. Information may be provided at the practice, regional and/or provincial levels, and no patient-level data are reported. In order to generate these reports, HQO receives aggregate data (i.e., not patient level information) from ICES.
Your confidential reports will only be provided to you and will not be shared with others, including other agencies or physician/surgeon groups.
