Canadian Hospital Reporting Project (CHRP)

About This Tool
Hospital Results
Key Findings
Clinical Performance Allocation
Financial Indicator Trending

The Canadian Hospital Reporting Project (CHRP) is a national quality improvement initiative from CIHI. This interactive tool gives hospital decision-makers, policy-makers and Canadians access to results for more than 600 facilities from every province and territory in Canada.

A total of 27 indicators—21 clinical and 6 financial—were chosen for CHRP based on their relevance to performance measurement and quality improvement. The selected indicators measure

  • Clinical effectiveness
  • Patient safety
  • Appropriateness of care
  • Accessibility
  • Financial performance

These indicators were chosen after reviewing existing hospital performance indicators and collaborating with experts in the field. The goal of CHRP is to foster quality improvement, learning and action.

Hospital Results

The Hospital Results provide reports and graphs that contain facility-level results for each indicator over multiple years. Using the interactive tool, users can compare peers at the regional, provincial/territorial and national levels and examine performance across years.

Contextual information, such as community profiles and hospital-level characteristics, is available to help users interpret the results and identify peer hospitals. The interactive nature of the tool means that users can focus on the information that is most relevant to them.

  • Policy- and decision-makers can track the success of improvement initiatives
  • Physicians and health care professionals can compare their results with the practices and performance of peer hospitals across the country.

The tool also has interactive maps to help users visualize, interpret and compare the information provided. Maps show a snapshot of performance across the country and can be a starting point for further investigation. They are also useful for those who are specifically interested in identifying performance trends related to population density or geography.

Key Findings

The Key Findings (see below) highlight notable trends and interesting results for selected indicators. These analyses highlight some of the differences seen across hospitals, peer groups and jurisdictions as well as over time. For this first release, the key findings focus on four indicators:

The Key Findings reports help users learn and share best practices. They assign Performance Allocation to hospitals for seven of the indicators in the Clinical Effectiveness domain. Performance Allocation is intended to help hospitals identify others they can learn from. It helps identify areas where improvement is needed, increase collaboration and track the success of improvement initiatives.

Performance Allocation

This provides an overview of selected clinical indicators. Performance Allocation is intended to help hospitals identify others they can learn from. It helps identify areas where improvement is needed, increase collaboration and track the success of improvement initiatives.

Clinical Performance Allocation results for 2011–2012 are not available. Additionally, 2010–2011 Performance Allocation results for the following indicators have not been updated.

  • 90-Day Readmission After Hip Replacement
  • 90-Day Readmission After Knee Replacement

Financial Indicators

This interactive dashboard displays a selection of financial indicators for a hospital, health region or province. It allows users to examine trends over time and see how these compare with the national average.
