Translating Standards into Action

Health System Funding Reform is transforming the way care is delivered across Ontario hospitals. The policy aims to put patients first with standardized and coordinated health care pathways for critical treatments. At Think Research, we’re helping clinicians mobilize Quality-Based Procedures into action with easy to use clinical support tools. Our QBP solution translates the vast amount of knowledge in the QBP handbooks and Ministry policy into clear and actionable steps.


Take action with QBPs

Introduce QBP standards at the point of care with easy to follow clinical actions. We’ve taken out the ambiguity from QBP standards and translated them into clinical actions that hospitals can follow and measure.

Designed for Ontario hospitals

Our in-house team of clinical experts has worked closely with an Ontario network of subject matter experts and leading clinical associations.

Moving QBPs forward

We’re working closely with the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and Health Quality Ontario to realize the vision of QBP policy and bridge the gap between high quality health care and fiscal responsibility.

Taking on the QBP challenge

Quality-Based Procedures will fund health care on a patient by patient basis, meaning every single patient must receive equitable, standardized, high quality care in order for hospitals to optimize funding.

Thousands of pages of clinical documentation have been produced to instruct clinicians on how to implement QBPs—that’s a lot of knowledge to retain! Accurately interpreting and aligning to QBP recommendations is a big challenge and requires a lot of clinicians’ time and energy.

We’ve taken out the complexity of adapting to Ontario’s health system reform. Our library of clinical Order Sets and decision guidance documents translates the vast amount of QBP information into actionable steps and orders that clinicians can access and follow right at the point of care. With our QBP solution, clinicians can spend their time where it matters most, with the patient.
