Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) – Primary Care

Supporting the principles of the Excellent Care for All Act and Ontario's Action Plan for Health Care, the ministry requires hospitals and some primary care providers (i.e., family health teams, Aboriginal Health Access Centres, Community Health Centres, and Nurse Practitioner Led Clinics) to prepare and submit annual quality improvement plans.
