The Ottawa Hospital Innovation Framework™
is a health care-centric, five-step approach that combines elements of other well-known models in a comprehensive and user-friendly way.

Here are the framework’s five steps to follow for your QI project:

  • define the problem,
  • analyze the situation,
  • test and trial improvements,
  • lock-in improvements, and
  • evaluate and spread the improvements.

Each step is accompanied by useful tools, templates and reference materials that provide the guidance you need to move through every stage.
