The Excellence through Quality Improvement Project (E-QIP) is jointly led by Addictions and Mental Health Ontario (AMHO) and the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Ontario Division, and delivered in close partnership with the Provincial Support System Program (PSSP) at the Centre of Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). Since 2016, E-QIP has delivered a robust program of training, education and coaching support for community mental health and addiction (MHA) agencies to use data and quality improvement (QI) principles to improve the quality of care they deliver. E-QIP is a trusted source of QI and data support for the community MHA sector, and a reliable liaison between the sector, the Ministry of Health, and the Mental Health and Addictions Centre of Excellence at Ontario Health. E-QIP is funded by the Mental Health and Addictions Centre of Excellence at Ontario Health.

E-QIP is…

  • A program that provides leadership and capacity building in quality improvement, measurement and use of data for decision-making
  • A trusted liaison between the community sector, provincial government and health system planners, and
  • A lever to operationalize Ontario’s plan to improve mental health and addiction services for communities across the province
