Your Health System web tool and Health Indicators e-Publication

On May 31, 2018, CIHI will be updating a number of indicators in the Your Health System (YHS) web tool and Health Indicators e-Publication to reflect the most recent year of data.

Updated indicator results will be available in the Data Preview for Indicators Tool on February 15, ahead of the public release. Since these indicators have been publicly reported for a number of years, they are included for your reference only. Should you have questions or concerns, please communicate them to hsp@cihi.ca no later than March 1.

This YHS release will also include indicators and contextual measures that have been or will be publicly released by CIHI or Statistics Canada. These indicators are not available in the Data Preview for Indicators Tool but will be made available in the YHS tool during the embargo period.

The full list of indicators and contextual measures that will be updated in the May release is now available on cihi.ca.
