1. Introducing QIRAP
The Quality Improvement Reporting and Analysis Platform (QIRAP) provides a single, integrated
platform for reporting and analysis of quality improvement (QI) measures for Health Quality
Ontario’s initiatives, as well as the Senior Friendly Hospitals initiative. End users can enter data
for measures through intuitive web pages, as well as use the reporting capability of the platform
to view Run Charts for each measure. Administrators of the system are HQO staff who have the
ability to perform tasks such as: manage users and their roles, manage measures, and run
numerous analysis reports.
