As legislated in Ontario’s Excellent Care for All Act, Health Quality Ontario’s mandate includes the provision of objective, evidence-informed advice about health care funding mechanisms, incentives, and opportunities to improve quality and efficiency in the health care system. As part of its Quality-Based Funding initiative, Health Quality Ontario works with multidisciplinary expert advisory panels (composed of leading clinicians, scientists, and administrators) to develop evidence-based practice recommendations and define episodes of care for selected disease areas or procedures. Health Quality Ontario’s recommendations are intended to inform the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care’s Health System Funding Strategy.
