Public Health Piloting Room: Enhanced Performance to Improve Population Health

Following the significant restructuring of Quebec’s healthcare system in 2015, every institution in the healthcare network (CISSS) set up a strategic piloting room. This proven performance management tool is used by their steering committees. Piloting rooms are used to coordinate initiatives derived from strategic plans including targets, transformative projects and completed activities.

The overarching goal of this IP is to adapt and implement a piloting room at the Direction de santé publique (DSP) de la Montérégie (Montérégie’s public health directorate), which would serve all three of its CISSS. Through its regional responsibilities, its concern with fostering staff and management engagement, as well as the challenge posed by the identification of indicators that adequately measure public health initiatives, the Directorate is looking to create a unique and adapted piloting room : democratized and multi-institutional with innovative indicators. Accordingly, through design and inclusive use (multiple professionals, orientations, stakeholders and institutions), this IP will democratize and engage resources around common priorities.

By participating in the IP’s development, the three CISSS will ensure public health related activities in our region are more consistent. Thanks to indicators that will measure public health related activities, the DSP will be in a better position to coordinate its activities and better inform other directorates with respect to their own activities, which will benefit our population’s health. Finally, the evaluation and the experimentation of this IP should inspire other directorates and other institutions to follow suit and adopt an innovative management tool.
