One way that we ensure quality — and that we are a trusted source of data — is through collaboration with our data suppliers. In addition, we produce annual data quality reports to assess the contribution of each province and territory to 11 of our databases. These reports are shared with the deputy ministers of health and key jurisdictional representatives from across the country. This reference guide describes the indicators and methodology used in these reports.
The Canadian Nurses Association, Canada Health Infoway and CIHI — with support from the Canadian Nursing Informatics Association and the University of Toronto — recently co-sponsored a symposium focused on clinical practice, administration, nursing education, research and policy. Its goal: develop an action plan for moving forward on the collection and use of nursing data standards in Canada. Learn more in the National Nursing Data Standards Symposium Proceedings.
