Excellent Care for All

Ontario's Excellent Care for All Strategy

Health care matters to every Ontarian. That’s why the government has taken important steps to improve the quality of Ontario’s health care system and make sure every health care dollar is used to provide the best possible care.

Ontario’s new Excellent Care for All strategy means that :

  1. The patient is at the centre of the health care system.
  2. Decisions about patient care are based on the best evidence and standards.
  3. The health care system is focused on the quality of care and the best use of resources.
  4. The main goal of the health care system is to get better and better at what it does.

How does this affect the health care system?

The health care system is playing a vital role in improving health care services for Ontarians by working toward new standards set out in the Excellent Care for All Act , which became law in June of 2010. These new standards will ensure that Ontarians receive health care of the highest possible quality and value.

How will it affect me?

For individual Ontarians and their families, the Excellent Care for All strategy means that :

Finally, health care providers will be paid based on how well they make quality their main job. As the health care system makes quality its number one concern, it will also make better use of public funds. And that means all Ontarians will be able to count on the health system being there in the future.
