The Central West LHIN 2017 Quality Awards

Healthy Change: Making It Happen denotes a shared sense of responsibility. It reflects an understanding and acceptance that by working together as a collaborative team of health service providers (HSPs), community partners and the LHIN organization, we can do so much more to bring about “healthy change” across the local health care system.

A celebration of quality and excellence, the Central West LHIN Quality Awards recognize the achievements of local teams as they relate to strategic directions and initiatives outlined in the LHIN’s 2016-2019 Integrated Health Service Plan.

Within its quality framework, the Central West LHIN has adopted attributes associated with Health Quality Ontario’s definition of a high-quality health system – a health system that delivers world-leading safe, effective, patient-centered services, efficiently and in a timely fashion, resulting in optimal health status for all communities.

In addition to demonstrating results within the context of these attributes, submissions must demonstrate the following:

  • the use of quality improvement principles
  • the use of change management principles
  • the use of partnerships to achieve outcomes (at least one
  • of the partners must be funded by the Central West LHIN)
  • measureable change in health outcomes and/or experiences
  • for patients/clients, and;
  • focused on the timeframe of 2015/16 fiscal to the present time.
