General Internal Medicine (GIM) patients represent 40% of Emergency Department admissions and 25% of bed days. As the largest inpatient population, there is a need for an approach to quality improvement (QI) in GIM that goes beyond specific diseases.

The General Medicine Inpatient Initiative (GEMINI) is developing a QI network to support the delivery of high quality care for all GIM inpatients in Ontario through timely and actionable data.
