Leading Practices Database

Our presence in all sectors across the care continuum provides an excellent opportunity for sharing innovative practices from health organizations nationally and internationally. The Leading Practices Database is proud to serve as the new location for innovative practices from the former Health Council of Canada Health Innovation Portal. The Leading Practices Database fosters inter-organizational learning and harvesting of new ideas. It includes nearly 1,000 practices recognized as being particularly innovative and effective in improving quality.

These practices are leading in a service delivery area, in a particular health care setting, or for a specific health care challenge. Some are ingenious in their simplicity. Often, they are implemented by organizations with limited resources, showing how innovative and creative strategies can achieve positive results at a minimal cost.

The database also contains Commendable Practices, which, while not new or leading, are proven to be efficient and effective methods for improving quality.
