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

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.
