ImpactBC supports patients, providers, and decision makers who are working towards health care improvement.
We provide BC patients with the skills and opportunities to participate in change. We collaborate with the Ministry of Health, health authorities, and health care service providers, applying our expertise in quality improvement, and ensuring that patients are partners throughout the process.
Quality Improvement turns ideas into action, using proven methods and measurements. We work with partners towards real improvement that is evidence based, measurable, and incorporates the patient voice.
Integrating the Patient Voice in improvement means putting the patient’s experience at the forefront, and bringing patients into the decision-making process. This is part of a global movement towards patient centred care, and BC is a leader in this area through the Ministry of Health’s Patients as Partners initiative.
