Over the past 15 years, Cancer Care Ontario has used a robust performance management approach to drive improvements in care. Each year, priority indicators and targets are selected or retained, and performance is reviewed quarterly with each of Ontario's Regional Cancer Programs. Improvement support and encouragement are provided, such as data analysis, program ranking, communities of practice, consultations, action plan requests and certificates. This article analyzes data on 28 indicators prioritized over these years and demonstrates that 25 have shown sustained improvement over time. The performance management approach, lessons learned and gaps in knowledge are described to inform future research and practice.
