Our strategy, mission and vision

Our strategy

At the Health Quality Council (HQC), we are guided by a strategy for working with organizations and patients in Saskatchewan to accelerate improvements in health care quality and safety. Our three-year strategic plan, released in October 2016, includes four priorities for continuing to make health care better and safer:

  1. Integrate patients and families as partners in all aspects of health care
  2. Build learning systems to spread knowledge on improving health care quality and safety
  3. Measure health care outcomes and processes to generate evidence for decision making
  4. Drive improvements in health care quality and safety by spreading best practices, ideas, and innovations
