Achieving world-class quality of care and safety requires organization, leadership and a passion for excellence. In our commitment to quality, Island Health works to foster an environment of collaboration and self-assessment within our organization.
Leaders, staff and physicians from across the health region work together on quality councils, medical advisory and quality assurance committees and working groups as part of the Combined Quality System, creating strategies to improve quality. Groups like the Combined Quality Council and Quality Governance System provide support and guidance for implementing quality improvements, creating policies and setting goals for improving our outcomes. Success is measured through tools like Accreditation and Clinical Care Management to ensure we are meeting national standards for best practices.
