Program Lead, Case Mix - Contract ending March 2012

This is an exciting opportunity for an individual who has an interest in health care policy, and who has a strong analytical background, to make a contribution to the delivery of health care in Canada by providing tools that assist policy makers and health care managers in making decisions.

Job Summary

Case mix systems classify patients into resource and clinical homogeneous groups based on clinical and demographic characteristics. The case mix systems developed and maintained by CIHI are used across Canada by hospitals, health regions and health ministries to better understand and manage the delivery of health care services.

Increasingly the jurisdictions across Canada are exploring the possibility of using case mix systems to allocate health-care funding.  This is known as activity based funding or case mix based funding.  The Program Lead works closely with the Case Mix manager and Senior Methodologist to explore jurisdictional case mix based funding needs. This involves liaising with key internal and external stakeholders, identification and management of stakeholder requirements, and liaising with national and international experts.  The program lead will also lead analytical activities to support policy considerations, evaluation and implementation of jurisdiction funding models.
