Systemic Treatment – Quality-Based Procedure (ST-QBP)
The Systemic Treatment – Quality Based Program (ST-QBP) manages funding for the delivery of outpatient systemic treatment services based on evidence-informed practice. The program was developed in collaboration with clinical experts and administrative leaders from across the province.
This best-practice approach aligns with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care’s direction for Health System Funding Reform. The province’s new patient-centred model ties funding more directly to the quality care that patients need and will be provided to them. It also uses limited resources more efficiently. This approach leads to a sustainable healthcare system based on equitable access to high-quality care.
