To enable physicians to lead quality improvement in the system that enhances the quality of care provided to patients and their families.
Sizing it Up
Through a Quality and Innovation (Q&I) Projects fund, SSC has dedicated up to $23M ($8M in 2012 and $15M in 2015) to support time-limited, specialist-led quality improvement projects at the local, regional and provincial levels.
Things to Know
All of the SSC funded projects were guided by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s Triple Aim objectives:
- improve the health of a defined population;
- enhance the patient (and/or provider) experience of care; and
- reduce or at least control the per capita cost of care.
The SSC coordinated with health authorities, the Ministry of Health and other stakeholders as part of the design, application and implementation process to support physician-identified and health authority-endorsed projects.
SSC is now focusing on supporting these projects and there are no opportunities for new funding under the Q&I Projects.
