HHHS is proud of its record of providing excellent care within Haliburton County. Feedback from our patients, clients, and residents reflects satisfaction with our services; however, we are continuously seeking ways to improve.
Quality Improvement Plans
The HHHS Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) is a vital tool that helps us ensure we are providing the highest possible quality of health services, communicating our progress to our various stakeholders and the community, and aligning with our strategic direction and plan.
The HHHS QIP addresses 4 specific objectives:
To build on the foundational understanding of Quality Improvement by management, physicians and frontline staff;
To focus on high quality and safe care in clinical practice by implementing best practices
To improve on transitions in care in a collaborative, coordinated, and efficient way by working on seamless transitions and improving flow; and
To ensure we provide support for staff by fostering a healthy work environment.
Our QIP allows HHHS to track and report to the community on initiatives that will support continuous quality improvement and better patient/client/resident care.
The HHHS QIP was developed with input from our staff, physicians, the Quality Committee, the Community Advisory Committee, the HHHS Board of Directors, and various other stakeholders. In developing the QIP, the strategy adopted was to have maximum collaboration and engagement and to focus on quality initiatives that reflect our key priorities as well as the demographics and population of the patients, clients, and residents we serve.
More information about QIPs in general can be found on the Ministry of Health website.
How to read a QIP
The QIP is only one of the ways HHHS is working to improve patient experiences and it is comprised of two parts:
A document that provides a brief overview of our quality improvement plan highlighting our organization's top priorities for the year.
A spreadsheet that includes our improvement targets and initiatives with a core set of indicators that similar hospitals across the province report on.
