Audit and Feedback: using data to improve quality of care


Dr. Noah Ivers is a scientist at Women’s College Research Institute and a family physician at Women’s College Hospital. He is also an adjunct scientist at the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Studies. His research is focused on systematically developing and evaluating initiatives that aim to improve quality in primary care. He uses principles from clinical epidemiology and health services research to conduct pragmatic evaluations of complex interventions. He focuses on use of data to drive healthcare decisions through initiatives such as performance feedback to health professionals as well as tailored reminders to patients to enable both evidence based and patient centred care.

In 2013, he won the CIHR-IHSPR (Canadian Institutes of Health Research Institute of Health Sciences and Policy Research) Rising Star Award for his systematic review evaluating the effects of audit and feedback on the practice of healthcare professionals and patient outcomes. He has also received New Investigator Awards from CIHR and a Clinician Scientist award from the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the University of Toronto.
