Quality Improvement Plan

Quality improvement plans (QIPs) are an opportunity for organizations to focus on how and what to improve, in the name of better patient-focused care.These unique documents are designed individually, by and for each organization.

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

Quality improvement plans are legislative requirements. The Excellent Care for All Act, which received royal assent in June 2010, fosters a culture of continuous quality improvement in health care, where the needs of patients come first. RVHS values both constant improvement in patient care and open and transparent communications with our communities.

The Excellent Care for All Act requires that every year, health care organizations (beginning with hospitals) develop a Quality Improvement Plan for the following fiscal year and make that plan available to the public.

These plans are an opportunity to highlight an organization's commitment to:

  • Delivering high quality health care;

  • Creating a positive patient experience;

  • Ensuring that it is responsive and accountable to the public;

  • Holding its executive team accountable for its achievement; and

  • Being transparent.
