Ontario Health recently developed the quality standard (QS) placemat in response to primary care feedback. The quality standard placemat highlights key elements of care from the quality standard and offers the following features:
- is an evidence-based, quick-reference tool that concisely summarizes key information from the quality standard
- includes links to helpful resources and tools
- can be used to facilitate patient-centered discussions
To make these tools easily accessible for primary care providers, the QS placemats can be uploaded within electronic medical records (EMRs) and can be integrated into your workflow efficiently and seamlessly. In your EMR, the QS placemat can be used to quickly access recommended clinical tools or relevant resources and documented in a patient’s chart. The quality standard patient guide can also be shared with patients and families to support discussions with their health care team.
We have developed step-by-step user guides to help you add the QS placemats into your EMR system:
