Webinar Wednesday – Modernizing CIHI’s Hospital Data Supply

Anne Forsyth and Isabel Tsui, CIHI- CIHI provides comparable and actionable data and information to accelerate improvements in health care, health system performance and population health across Canada. The Discharge Abstract Database (DAD) and National Ambulatory Care Reporting System (NACRS) are two of CIHI’s highest volume and most commonly used data sets for planning and management purposes in the health care system.

As the health care data landscape evolves to become increasingly integrated and interoperable, CIHI’s pan-Canadian data holdings will evolve in tandem to ensure relevant and timely data can continue to be made available for planning and management purposes. This presentation will discuss how investments made in eHealth/digital technology can be leveraged to access near real-time data and the role data standards play in this work
