Minister's Medal 2016

The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care is excited to announce the launch of the 4th annual Minister’s Medal Honouring Excellence in Health Quality and Safety. This annual recognition program aims to honour exceptional work across the health system and showcase successes in cross-sector collaboration of health system partners to deliver high-quality, patient-centred care.

The focus of the 2016 program is on recognizing initiatives that align with the key objectives outlined in the Patients First: Action Plan for Health Care. This year, we are also placing additional emphasis on patient engagement, seeking applications that demonstrate successes in engaging patients in the delivery of high-quality care. Further, selection criteria this year will align with the key areas outlined in the recently introduced Patients First legislation including:

  • Effective integration of services
  • Timely access to, and better integration of, primary care
  • More consistent and accessible home & community care
  • Stronger links to population & public health
  • Providing services that address the needs of Indigenous people across Ontario
