CIHI contributes to a better understanding of specialized services available across the Canadian health care system. CIHI does this with databases and applications like the

  • Hospital Mental Health Database (HMHDB)
  • Canadian Organ Replacement Register (CORR)
  • Canadian Joint Replacement Registry (CJRR)

Service providers and policy-makers can use this data to enhance quality of care for patients with more complex needs. The data also allows for system planning to meet ever-changing needs.
