More timely and flexible data
As we roll out our strategic plan, we are also modernizing our data supply. We want to find the best way to acquire and provide access to data to help our stakeholders achieve their health system goals. We are expanding our role from data collector to data facilitator. To do so, we need to challenge some of our processes. For example, could we collect data directly from patients? Or could CIHI perhaps simply extract the data from existing sources, instead of storing it ourselves?
At the same time, we are moving toward more integrated processes, systems and teams to provide a better client experience. These initiatives support our modernization plan to fill data gaps, to reduce data collection burden and to provide increased value and service.
