About the EQI Program

The EQI Review Process

CorHealth Ontario proudly leads the Echocardiography Quality Improvement (EQI) Program. Participation in the EQI Program is open to all facilities in Ontario providing echocardiography services. Through the program, we partner with facilities to review them as they relate to the Standards for Provision of Echocardiography in Ontario (2015). The Criteria for Adjudication of Echocardiography Facilities (2018) provides a detailed overview of how CorHealth Ontario conducts On-Site Reviews and does its assessment of your facility.

The EQI Program has six steps which lead to facilities achieving certification. For information on each of the steps, please click here

Preparing for the EQI Process

We look forward to working with you to improve echocardiography in Ontario. In preparation for your journey through the Program, we recommend you and your colleagues:

  • Review the Standards for Provision of Echocardiography in Ontario (2015)
  • Complete a self-review by comparing the service you provide against each Standard
  • If applicable, determine areas for improvement and implement the required changes
  • Ensure your facility Policy and Procedure manual reflects the Standards and the practice of all facility staff.

We’re here to help.
