Quality Improvement Plan

Halton Healthcare is pleased to share our sixth Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) for 2016/17. This plan describes the hospital’s priorities for and commitment to a robust quality program that serves our patients, families and communities. This year’s QIP program represents a continuation our 2015/16 Quality Plan with a focus on the six priority areas identified by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC). There are also two additional indicators that Halton Healthcare has identified to be important patient safety indicators, aligned with our new organizational Strategic Priorities.  The eight indicators we have selected for the 2016/17 Quality Improvement Plan are as follows:

  1. Readmissions
  2. Alternate Level of Care-rate
  3. Patient Satisfaction
  4. Medication Reconciliation
  5. Patient Falls
  6. Clostridium Difficile
  7. Urinary Tract infections
  8. Emergency Department Wait Times for Admitted Patients

The Halton Healthcare QIP continues to be an important subset of our larger quality agenda and is developed in alignment with other program and quality planning processes. We invite you to review three documents that comprise our QIP for this year:

  1. The Narrative: Our journey of Quality Improvement & the background and context for this year’s plan
  2. The Workplan: Indicators, targets and change ideas
  3. Progress Report: A summary of our progress on our previous years goals
