Quality Improvement Plan (QIP)
The Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) is a requirement under the Excellent Care For All Act, 2010. The legislation assists healthcare organizations to improve the quality and safety of care we deliver.
Quality improvement is an ongoing priority that helps us continually find new and better ways to enhance care for our clients, increase satisfaction and achieve even better clinical outcomes.
Our QIP is one tool that we are using to help us document and review our current performance in a variety of areas. With this plan, we will be able to very clearly see our targeted areas for improvement and chart our progress.
St. Joseph's Care Group (SJCG) is pleased to submit one Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) for 2017-2018 which includes our hospitals, St. Joseph's Hospital and Lakehead Psychiatric Hospital and our long-term care homes, Bethammi Nursing Home and Hogarth Riverview Manor.

Progress Report on QIP
The Progress Report is an opportunity for St. Joseph's Care Group to demonstrate to our stakeholders the progress we have made to date on our priority indicators. It is an opportunity for us to describe our quality improvement journey and identify and discuss some of the challenges we faced in attaining the goals set out in our 2016-2017 Quality Improvement Plan (QIP).
The QIP is only one of the ways we are working to improve our clients'' experiences. Please feel free to contact the Manager of Planning & Performance if you have any questions or comments.
