Jan. 6, 2020 – We’re excited to introduce you to Dr. Irfan Dhalla, our new vice president, Physician Quality and director, Care Experience Institute. From 2013 to 2019, Dr. Dhalla was a vice president at Health Quality Ontario where he and his colleagues transformed the way the provincial agency supported Ontario’s health care system. In particular, HQO partnered with patients and tried to support improvements in care for all Ontarians. Irfan oversaw the work the organization did to support decisions about which health care services should be publicly funded and he also envisioned and led the development of Health Quality Ontario’s quality standards program which is now widely used across Ontario as a basis for evidence-based quality improvement. We caught up with him to ask him a few questions to help you get to know him a little bit better.
