This release, which includes static and interactive data tables, provides the most up-to-date information on emergency department (ED) visits and time spent in the ED for reporting jurisdictions in Canada.

Selected indicators and contextual measures will be updated with the most recent year of data. These include indicators about long-term care, the hospital standardized mortality ratio and potentially avoidable mortality. CIHI’s Indicator Library will also be updated.

This descriptive analysis uses data from 2 sources — the Hospital Morbidity Database and the National Ambulatory Care Reporting System — to examine pan-Canadian trends of hospitalizations and emergency department visits due to opioid poisoning in relation to patient demographics, clinical characteristics and provincial/territorial rates.

This report introduces the work undertaken by CIHI and the Canadian Patient Safety Institute to develop a new measure of hospital harm that is linked to an improvement resource containing evidence-informed practices that can reduce the occurrence of harm in hospitals. The report provides an overview of the status of these events in Canada and identifies how the data and improvement resource can be used to improve patient safety.

These data tables contain information from all provinces and territories on hospitalizations for mental illness and addictions. Statistics are available at the health region, provincial/territorial and pan-Canadian levels.

We’re looking forward to the next 5 years as we work toward the new goals set out in our strategic plan. Read all about it in our latest annual report.

This report and interactive eTool compare Canada’s international performance on premature mortality, as measured by potential years of life lost (PYLL), with the performance of 17 other high-income countries in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) from 1960 to 2010. The report examines how Canada performed overall on PYLL, differences between men and women in Canada versus those in other countries, and Canada’s performance on 4 specific causes of premature mortality (cancer, heart disease, stroke and deaths due to external causes).
