Quality Improvement Plan

A Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) is a health care organization’s formal plan to improve the care they provide to patients and their caregivers. Hospitals are legally required to submit a QIP to Health Quality Ontario each year by April 1st. The Quality Improvement Plan is part of the Government of Ontario’s Excellent Care for All Act.

Overall, a QIP should be seen as a tool, providing a structured format and common language that focuses an organization on change. The QIP will drive change by formalizing a plan and facilitating shared dialogue to support continuous quality improvement processes.

The QIP is only one of the ways we are working to improve our patients’ experiences. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have at 1-807-684-6019 or qrm@tbh.net
How to Read the Quality Improvement Plan

Our 2023-2024 Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) is made up of two parts:

  1.  A document that provides a brief overview of our quality improvement plan, highlighting and listing our hospital’s top priorities for the year.
  2.  A spreadsheet that includes our improvement targets and initiatives. The spreadsheet includes a core set of indicators that all similar hospitals across the province are working on.
