Learn even more about your practice by signing up for a confidential report that includes personalized data, along with suggestions to support you in improving care for your patients.

What’s in the report?

  • Practice, regional and provincial-level data so you can see your care patterns, in relation to your peers

  • Data about your opioid prescribing patterns along with data on how your patients are doing with cancer screenings and diabetes management, and how they’re using other health services, like emergency departments

  • Suggestions and resources alongside your data so you can spend less time looking for solutions that may already exist and more time helping your patients

As of February 2024, 5405 (or 56%) of approximately 9,600 eligible primary care family physicians, and 170 (or 94%) of 180 eligible Family Health Team executive directors are registered for a MyPractice primary care report.

Learn how our Chief of Clinical Affairs, Dr. David Kaplan used his own practice report to discover that many of his patients were filling opioid prescriptions they had received from someone else, and how this led him to ask his patients additional questions during routine health exams. Read his story.

Frequently Asked Questions

MyPractice: Primary Care report will provide you with confidential information about your own practice, in relation to peers across the province.

This report gives you your opioid prescribing patterns compared with others. In addition, you can see how your patients are doing with their cancer screening and diabetes management – and learn how they are using other health services, like emergency departments.

This means you will be able to take what the data is showing you about your individual practice and use your patients’ electronic medical records to find specific patients in need of attention.

Plus, you will get practice ideas specific to improvement topics, which can mean less effort and time having to search for solutions that may already exist.

This report is not available for anyone else to see other than the physician who requests it.

The MyPractice report was developed jointly by Health Quality Ontario and the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences, in partnership with the Association of Family Health Teams of Ontario, Association of Ontario Health Centres, and the Ontario College of Family Physicians.

The MyPractice report examines data specific to your practice, to identify gaps and to offer practice ideas for improvement. These reports show information about your practice in relation to others in the province. Also, no patient-level data are reported.

The report is available to non-salaried family physicians who work in a comprehensive family medicine office setting. Unfortunately, the report is not currently available to family physicians who are part of a salaried model of care, such as Community Health Centres, and family physicians who have a focused practice, (e.g. emergency departments or pain management). This is because each physician’s report is based on rostered and ‘virtually rostered’ patients, and those who do not roster/ virtually roster are not able to receive a report. Virtual rostering is an algorithm that attributes physicians to patients for whom they have billed or ‘shadow’ billed the largest amount of core primary care services.
