Powerful data 

CIHI’s impact extends beyond health care. We are a trusted source of data for public safety, too. Last year, the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) in Ontario presented CIHI with the Chief Public Safety Officer’s Special Recognition Award. In its annual Ontario Electrical Safety Report, ESA used CIHI’s National Ambulatory Care Reporting System (NACRS) emergency department data to identify the number of injuries from electrical fires. ESA noted that “the information you provide helps to develop important safety insights that drive change and help us address the areas of greatest risk to improve electrical safety.”
