Building a Quality Improvement Coalition: A Cancer Information Management Strategy for Ontario

Ian Brunskill


Information management plans should support the organization's overall business objectives rather than being crafted in isolation from overall organizational strategies. The cancer system is undergoing significant transformation, including integration of service delivery at the regional level and a revamped role for Cancer Care Ontario. The Cancer Information Management plan for Ontario outlines an approach to linking and coordinating various information management systems and projects to support the new directions. Through a coalition of partners working together and by building on the success of earlier initiatives - including the widespread adoption of CPOE within a large part of the cancer system - the plan will improve the quality of care for Ontario cancer patients.
