We're helping to improve health care in Saskatchewan.

We’re working with our partners to build a rapid-learning, patient-first health care system.

Leaf

We’re working to shorten waits in Emergency by improving how patients move through hospitals and other parts of the health system.

HQC is working with its partners to develop a new approach to measuring and reporting on health system performance.

We want to create a health care system that is grounded in mutually beneficial partnerships among providers, patients, and families.

HQC offers learning programs for people working at all levels in the health care system.

Through Choosing Wisely Saskatchewan, we are helping clinicians and patients talk about unnecessary tests and treatments, and make smart choices to ensure high-quality health care.

We partner with individuals and organizations to conduct patient-oriented research, and to study drug utilization, safety, and effectiveness.
