Identify Spread Scale

The Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement is a not-for-profit organization funded by Health Canada, dedicated to accelerating healthcare improvement. CFHI plays a unique, pan-Canadian role in spreading healthcare innovations.

We help teams from different jurisdictions work together on common improvement priorities, providing opportunities to implement and spread patient-centred, evidence-informed solutions across regions, provinces and territories.

Working with CFHI, healthcare organizations have made real progress on issues in:

  • Patient- and family-centred care
  • Efficiency
  • Access
  • Coordination of care and care transitions
  • Effectiveness and appropriateness
  • Safety
  • Equity
