The Institute for Quality Management in Healthcare (IQMH), in conjunction with the Ontario government conduct peer assessments for all laboratories licensed in Ontario. To be accredited with a four-year certificate, and be considered a ‘quality’ organization, laboratories in Ontario are required to conform to the IQMH requirements.

The Grand River Hospital is a 567-bed hospital serving Waterloo Region, Ontario, Canada, and surrounding communities. They implemented Q-Pulse to ensure that their quality programme met the standards.
