ECFAA, passed in June 2010, laid the foundation for a health care system that is patient-centered, focused on accountability and transparency, and committed to improving the quality of care Ontarians receive. The government’s commitment to quality improvement applies to all health care sectors to share in the commitment to quality health care where the needs of patients/clients/residents come first.
While ECFAA provided the foundation for excellence, Ontario’s Action Plan for Health Care, which was released in January 2012 by the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, built on this foundation, providing an ambitious blueprint for health system transformation that involves all health care partners and providers.
Quality improvement is an ongoing priority that helps us continually find new and better ways of doing things so that we can enhance care for patients/residents, increase satisfaction, and achieve better clinical outcomes.
