Fiscal 2017–2018 (April 1 to March 31)

1. Testing of the CACS Grouping Methodology

The Licensed Grouper Vendors listed below have successfully met the CIHI testing requirements for the 2017–2018 CACS Grouper. To ensure vendor system compliance with CIHI’s CACS production system, the grouper licensed vendors were mandated to submit test data files that had been grouped using their vendor assigned values. CACS vendor assigned values had to comply 100% with the CIHI assigned values before the testing was deemed successful.

 

2. Testing of the NACRS

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

The licensed vendors listed below have successfully submitted ambulatory test data to the CIHI National Ambulatory Care Reporting System database for fiscal 2017–2018. This means the vendor:

  • Submitted test files that contain sufficient variation to test new data elements and new domains of values for existing data elements  
  • Submitted insert data files and demonstrated the ability to subsequently submit corrections/updates, deletions and resubmissions and multiple MIS Functional Centre Account Codes.
  • 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 hospital test data to CIHI. Posting the names of vendors does not indicate an endorsement of their product by CIHI.

Please e-mail vendors@cihi.ca for more information.
