Fiscal 2016–2017 (April 1 to March 31)

1. Testing of the Discharge Abstract Database (DAD) Grouping Methodology (CMG+ and CACS)

CIHI requires all Licensed Grouper Vendors to submit test files at the beginning of every fiscal year. The vendors listed below have successfully submitted test data for the 2016–2017 DAD Grouper only (CMG+ and CACS). To ensure vendor system compliance with CIHI’s CMG+ production system, the grouper licensed vendors were mandated to submit test data files that had been grouped using their vendor assigned values. CMG+/CACS vendor assigned values had to comply 100% with the CIHI assigned values before the testing was deemed successful.

2. Testing of the Integrated DAD 2016–2017

CIHI requires all DAD licensed vendors to submit test files at the beginning of every fiscal year to ensure compliance in applying all new edits for the DAD data collection.

The Licensed Vendors listed below have successfully met the CIHI testing requirements for the integrated DAD 2016–2017 CMG+/CACS.  This means the vendor:

  • Submitted test data that complied 100% with the CIHI defined edits
  • Submitted sufficient original test abstracts  and demonstrated the ability to subsequently submit corrections, deletions, and additions abstracts.
  • Submitted at least one test file for each province/territory where they have installations and there have been changes to the Edit Specifications.

Hospitals are requested to ascertain that their vendor has completed the vendor test process for their provincial/territorial version before submitting their own DAD2016-20176 period one (April) test data.  Posting the names of vendors does not indicate an endorsement of their product by CIHI.

Please email vendors@cihi.ca for more information.
