Accountability

Accreditation

Access Alliance has been a fully accredited organization since 2001 by the Canadian Centre for Accreditation (formerly known as Building Healthier Organizations). The CCA accreditation is an acknowledgment of an organization meeting acceptable standards of practice, and holds organizations accountable to these standards. It is a system to promote learning, improvement, excellence and innovation.

Quality Improvement

Ontario’s inter-professional, team-based primary care organizations are required to submit annual Quality Improvement Plans (QIP) to Health Quality Ontario. A QIP is a formal commitment to quality improvement, aligned with system and provincial priorities. We improve our health services by:

  • Placing the patient and their community at the center of our work so we can plan the best possible quality of primary care, by the correct service providers, at the correct time.
  • Working to improve health equity among distinct population groups, as well as the health of the overall population.
  • Identifying the root causes for any issue, reducing waste in the system, and maximizing resources.

Contact us for more information about our Quality Improvement Plan.

Multi-Sector Service Accountability Agreement

Multi-Sector Service Accountability Agreement (M-SAA) is an accountability agreement delineating accountabilities and performance expectations. M-SAA clarifies responsibility of health service providers for delivering on performance and also planning and integration towards development of health care systems. It brings into one document various contractual agreements between Community Health Service Providers (HSPs) and the Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs). Contact us for more information or to receive a copy of the Agreement.
