CIHI without borders
This past year, CIHI’s president and CEO David O’Toole and other CIHI staff have been learning from colleagues around the world. By communicating with our peers internationally, we share our expertise and gain knowledge that offers context for CIHI’s work at home. We want to make sure that we can measure at a global level by producing comparable data. This exchange of ideas and best practices helps inform health care decisions from Canada to Australia and all points in between.
For example, Mr. O’Toole was part of a national delegation that attended the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Policy Forum on the Future of Health in Paris. Our ongoing work with the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare and the New Zealand Ministry of Health is strengthening our connection and opportunity for collaboration. We also met with the United States’ Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute, gaining insights on ways that CIHI can increase data access and better support patient-oriented research.
