News

Your Health System Updated  

The CCRS Indicators available in the Your Health System web tool have now been updated with the 2016-2017 year of data.  If you missed the web conference that provided an overview of the updates and a tour of the web tool, you can view the recorded version. Please contact hsp@cihi.ca if you have any questions. 

Provincial and Territorial Data Quality (PTDQ) reports are available

The PTDQ reports are produced annually for the deputy ministers and other stakeholders within the respective ministries of health across the country to help jurisdictions stay on top of their data quality and drive data quality improvements.  These reports include key quality indicator results and a jurisdiction-specific summary of highlighted findings. These reports are available through your ministry of health representatives.

Did you know?

Auto-notifications are sent to clients through the CCRS, HCRS and HCRS-CA systems when data submission reports are available for viewing.

If you have not been receiving notifications you can simply submit a new Contact Information (CI) record, which includes your e-mail address, from your RAI software.  Once the file has been processed you will start receiving notifications.

CIHI also use the contacts listed on the CI record for communication purposes so it is important that organisations and facilities keep this information up-to-date.
