Several CIHI data sources have been used to produce clinical and financial indicators. Clinical data is drawn from administrative health care databases, such as the Discharge Abstract Database (DAD), the National Ambulatory Care Reporting System (NACRS), the Alberta Ambulatory Care Reporting System (AACRS) and the Hospital Morbidity Database (HMDB), as well as case mix grouping data. Financial data is drawn from the Canadian MIS Database (CMDB) and the DAD.
Hospital profile data is sourced from the CMDB, the DAD and case mix tools.
Community profile information comes from Statistics Canada.
