About the LMP Quality Council

The LMP Quality Council aims to promote alliances between hospitals affiliated with the University of Toronto, including community hospitals, to develop novel quality programs or initiatives that will enhance patient care and lead to the harmonization of quality indicators and critical values across the GTA.

The council includes representatives from several teaching and community hospitals who meet on a monthly basis.

We will:

  • Organize subcommittees to develop and oversee quality and utilization initiatives as needed.
  • Work together with other LMP Vice Chairs to develop new programs, projects, and offerings aimed at developing faculty expertise in quality.
  • Develop a process for faculty quality awards for developing novel programs or methods that can be used across hospital-based clinical laboratories.
  • Improve the integration of quality with clinical practice, education, CPD, and research.
  • Coordinate the quantitative assessment of new initiatives.
  • Collect and analyze data across institutions.
  • Review data to assess variability across hospital systems and their associated clinical laboratories to identify potential areas for harmonization.
  • Develop an LMP-wide quality assurance program to assess quality indicators and performance measures in each area of Laboratory Medicine.
  • Develop harmonized methods and reference intervals.
