The EQI Review Process
IQMH proudly leads the Echocardiography Quality Improvement (EQI) Program. Participation in the EQI Program is open to all facilities in Ontario providing echocardiography services. Through the program, we partner with facilities to review them as they relate to the Standards for Provision of Echocardiography in Ontario (2015). The EQI Program Information provides a detailed overview of how the EQI Program conducts on-site reviews and does its assessment of your facility.
The EQI Program has eight steps which lead to facilities achieving accreditation. For information on each of the steps, please click here.
Preparing for the EQI Process
We look forward to working with you to improve echocardiography in Ontario. In preparation for your journey through the Program, we recommend you and your colleagues:
- Review the Standards for Provision of Echocardiography in Ontario (2015)
- Complete a self-review by comparing the service you provide against each Standard
- If applicable, determine areas for improvement and implement the required changes
- Ensure your facility Policy and Procedure manual reflects the Standards and the practice of all facility staff.
