Improving Health System Efficiency in Canada

What actions are decision-makers taking to improve health system efficiency in Canada and what are the associated challenges? Find out in CIHI’s new report, Improving Health System Efficiency in Canada: Perspectives of Decision-Makers.

This study is the third in a 3-phase project on health system efficiency undertaken by CIHI’s Canadian Population Health Initiative (CPHI). 

Your Health System: Insight

Health care providers and analysts can dig deeper into indicator results using Your Health System: Insight. This analytical tool is designed to help health system managers measure, monitor and improve the performance of health care organizations.

Comparisons of knee replacement surgeries

This analytical suite compares bilateral total knee replacements performed during separate surgeries (staged) and during the same surgery (simultaneously), with respect to patient characteristics, clinical outcomes and high-level system costs. It contains Canadian data from 2006–2007 to 2014–2015.

interRAI Toolkit

interRAI assessment standards are used by health organizations to assess people at the point of care. Information is captured in real time, which makes it easier for those who provide care to flag risks, supporting important clinical decisions about a person’s health. The same information can support decisions about program planning, resource allocation and funding.

CIHI has developed this toolkit of practical resources to use when implementing these standards

Acute and Ambulatory Care Data Content Standard

CIHI is leading an initiative to improve and standardize acute and ambulatory care data across the country, in alignment with government e-health programs. The Acute and Ambulatory Care (AAC) Data Content Standard will increase the availability of structured, comparable data to support priority information needs at the clinical and health system levels.
