Continuous Quality Improvement

Over the past several years, Manitoba has invested in many initiatives targeted at strengthening the primary care system. These initiatives help to reduce disparities, ensure a sustainable health care system and improve outcomes related to access to services, quality and safety in service delivery, patient-centered care, system efficiency and effectiveness.

Measurement, evaluation and quality improvement frameworks are developed and embedded into existing regional, provincial and/or national planning, accountability and governance processes. A continuous quality improvement approach is essentially defined by the attention to data collection and monitoring, processes analysis and improvement, targets definition and measurement.

At a system level, implicit benefits of such approach display their effects in terms of: ongoing and constant performance monitoring, strategic definition of how to adapt/change processes for target achievement, savings from the implementation of more efficient processes, informed decision making, increase in reporting capacity and quality, increase in system transparency and reliability.
