Quality improvement is an ongoing priority that helps us continually find new and better ways to enhance care for patients, increase satisfaction, and achieve even better clinical outcomes. Our Quality Improvement Plan, or QIP, is one tool that we are using to help us document and review our current performance in a variety of areas.

What is the Quality Improvement Plan?

Each year, as part of the Excellent Care for All Act (2010) all hospitals publicly post quality improvement plans to the provincial government to track improvement performance across the system. QIPs provide a meaningful way for Oak Valley Health to show our accountability to our community, patients, and staff. Our QIP is focused on creating a positive patient experience and delivering high-quality health care. With this plan, you will see our targeted areas for improvement and our progress.

How to read our QIP?

Our QIP is made up of two parts:

  1. The narrative provides a brief overview of our QIP, highlighting and listing our top priorities for the year.
  1. The work plan includes our improvement targets and initiatives. It includes a core set of indicators that all similar hospitals across the province are working on with indicators in the areas of safety, effectiveness, access, and focused on patient-centred care.
