Quality Improvement Plan 2023/24
The Quality Improvement Plan is a fundamental component of the Excellent Care for All Act (ECFAA), 2010. This legislation requires that health service providers from all sectors develop an annual Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) for the following fiscal year and make that plan available to the public.
The 2023/24 plan contains many of the same features of its predecessors: an identified list of system focused quality indicators, performance data and targets as well as associated improvement initiatives and milestones. The plan also continues to represent a subset of our broader corporate quality and safety plan and is aligned with the broader provincial health system quality agenda.
Within this context, the 2023/24 Quality Improvement Plan has a strategic focus on health system recovery, enhanced hospital capacity and access to care and workforce stabilization and revitalization. As well, Halton Healthcare will also move forward on year two deliverables attached to our Strategic Plan, on Health Information System optimization and a refresh of our Patient Experience and Engagement Strategy.
Halton Healthcare’s 2023/24 Quality Improvement Plan identifies seven quality indicators and thirteen improvement initiatives. The quality indicators identified in the plan include:
- Emergency Department wait time for inpatient bed.
- Did you receive enough information when you left the hospital?
- Would you recommend the Emergency Department?
- Percentage of eligible staff participating in Year 2 of the moreOB program.
- Best Possible Medication Discharge Plan percentage compliance.
- Decrease number of workplace violence incidents.
- Culturally Responsive Care.
This year Ontario Health has clarified that the submission of the QIP will be considered mandatory and Halton Healthcare has prepared the following documents which are available in the links on this page. These documents will be submitted through the provincial quality portal when available.
