Chronic Disease Management: Quality Improvement Program

The Chronic Disease Management - Quality Improvement Program (CDM-QIP) helps ensure the best possible care for patients living with a chronic disease. 

The program: 

  • Provides clinical tools to health care providers to help them follow best practices when they provide care; and
  • Collects data that gives health care providers a clear and complete picture of a patient's condition and care history. 

Program goals:

  • Improve the continuity and quality of care for people living with chronic conditions;
  • Encourage and support physicians and other healthcare providers to implement best practices (e.g. flow sheets and clinical practice guidelines); and
  • Leverage Saskatchewan's health information system to better meet the needs of residents and providers (e.g. EMRs and the eHR Viewer). 

The program is focusing on diabetes and coronary artery disease (CAD). Patient information important for monitoring chronic disease is being collected from participating clinics in the province where they received health services. The program tracks indicators that have been shown to improve patient outcomes. Data is stored centrally to give physicians a comprehensive picture of a patient's health and help them provide better care. All family physicians are being encouraged to participate in this new program. 

The Ministry of Health, Saskatchewan Medical Association and eHealth Saskatchewan partnered to develop the program with assistance from clinical leaders.
