Quality Indicators

At The Ottawa Hospital, excellence in patient care is our priority.

Indicators represent a snapshot in time and are helpful in providing clues as to what is happening in the hospital. Monitoring this data allows us to determine what is going well and where we need to focus our efforts to improve patient care. By reviewing the data regularly, we can ensure that we are constantly improving in all areas of the essential services we deliver.

To ensure we achieve this, we measure our success against quality indicators – benchmarks we use to rate patient satisfaction and performance. By improving on wait times, infection rates and other essential hospital services, our goal is to become a top 10% performer in quality and safety of patient care in North America.
