Excellence through Quality Improvement Project

The Excellence through Quality Improvement Project (E-QIP) is a Quality Improvement program focused on leadership and capacity building led by Addictions and Mental Health Ontario (AMHO) and the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), Ontario. E-QIP is funded by and delivered in collaboration with Ontario Health. The project promotes and supports the use of evidence-based assessment tools to do quality improvement (QI) and aims to improve mental health and addiction care in the community. The project supports agencies to achieve this vision by:

  • Increasing QI adoption, culture and capacity
  • Increasing the uptake of standardized tools and datasets and the use of data for decision-making and planning, and
  • Identification and development of QI indicators for the community MHA sector aligned to provincial priorities and embedded within a provincial performance framework as developed by Ontario Health

E-QIP works collaboratively with the Mental Health and Addictions Centre of Excellence at Ontario Health to foster a data driven approach to improving care in the community mental health and addiction sector and to support the implementation of The Roadmap to Wellness.

Ontario Health

Ontario Health (OH) is an agency created by the Government of Ontario with a mandate to connect and coordinate our province’s health care system in ways that have not been done before, to help ensure that Ontarians receive the best possible care.

We believe in patient-centred care and in health equity. And we believe in learning from the many diverse communities that make up Ontario, so we can reflect those learnings in everything we do.

Our highly skilled team comes from across the province and collectively applies world class experience, knowledge and expertise to support health care professionals and to benefit all Ontarians.
