Doctors are an essential part of BC’s health care system – a system that faces continuous challenges as well as opportunities. Improving BC’s Health System Performance, developed by Doctors of BC's Council on Health Economics and Policy, lays out the commitments we are making to help improve BC’s healthcare system as well as makes recommendations to all healthcare stakeholders.
The policy paper is a framework that builds upon learnings of physicians in their own local and provincial quality improvement efforts and also builds upon the foundation of the collaborative work already done by Doctors of BC and the Ministry of Health, Divisions of Family Practice, Medical Staff Associations, patient organizations, and others across the province.
