System Evaluation

Improving quality through standardized evaluation 

The RCA's Rehabilitative Care System Evaluation Framework supports a standardized approach to evaluating system performance across the rehabilitative care continuum. This will allow LHINs to compare their performance against each other and against provincial benchmarks. A standardized approach supports evidence-based practice and system-wide improvement and also allows LHINs and health service providers to demonstrate how rehabilitative care contributes to the health care system.

The RCA is currently working with LHINs to identify quality improvement opportunities to improve their performance against the provincial benchmarks and is refining a process for annual reporting across the province. A more detailed list of activities for all RCA initiatives is found here.
