Our new strategic plan (PDF) may be just a year old, but it is already shaping who we are and where we are going over the next 5 years. It has inspired us to take a fresh look at our work and how we do it. We have a renewed direction and commitment to meaningful engagement with the people and organizations we work with across the country.
This annual report highlights CIHI’s accomplishments in 2016–2017 as they align under our plan’s 3 strategic goals and 4 foundational elements. We also take a look at work under way around our priority themes and populations.
In my first year as Board chair, I continue to be amazed by the depth and breadth of work being accomplished by both the CIHI team and our partners. We play a key role in transforming and accelerating improvements in health care.
As president, I see that impact every day. Our focus is on listening, adapting and delivering. We want to make it easier for everyone to work with CIHI and with each other. That is our commitment to action.
We are proud of our role as a trusted, international leader in health data, analysis, tools and information. We are committed to providing stakeholders with the information and evidence they need to ensure the health of all Canadians. It’s an ambitious plan. And, as we move into year 2, we believe we are on the right track.
Better data. Better decisions. Healthier Canadians.
