Health System Use of Data
CIHI collaborates with stakeholders across Canada to advance the health system use of electronic health data in new and innovative ways. We work with Canada Health Infoway and others to create the knowledge base we need to improve patient experiences, support front-line care providers and build a more effective and efficient health system.
CIHI’s Strategic Plan, 2016 to 2021 is the result of extensive consultation with our stakeholder community, our staff and our international colleagues.
At CIHI, everything we do is about the quality of our data. Through comprehensive data quality programs, we ensure that the quality of information in our data holdings is suited to its intended uses. We also make sure that data users are provided with good information about data quality. We put each data holding through rigorous data-quality practices to ensure the highest-quality data for decisions-makers and researchers.
We are committed to the protection of individual privacy, the confidentiality of records and the security of information. This commitment to privacy protection extends both to users of this website and to the information in our databases.
