Successful treatment of early phase psychosis (EPP) requires an organized, recovery oriented mental health system with clear standards, policies and coordinated services. The Canadian Consortium for Early Intervention in Psychosis (CCEIP), a national organization of clinicians and researchers dedicated to improving quality of care in EPP, have developed two clinician order sets based on international, national and provincial standards, guidelines and quality based procedures, to be used in outpatient or inpatient settings.  Order sets are evidence-based checklists which translate the latest medical information into a structured and actionable document that clinicians can put into practice at the point of care. Using a cloud-based platform, CCEIP developed and tested order sets for: 1) Initiation of Treatment for and 2) Optimization of Treatment for Early Phase Psychotic Disorders.  These order sets are aimed to improve adherence to best practice, treatment outcomes, quality of care through data tracking and feedback, consistency and efficiency of care, in addition to reducing cost of care and medical errors. A discussion around the use of order sets, presentation of the 2 developed order sets and their referenced tools, and data from a national accredited performance assessment program on use of these orders sets will be presented. This data will include dashboard results of widespread usage, quantifiable insights into EPP health care practice including real-time use data on ordering (care) trends as well as implications/assumptions.
