New Report--Developing a Model for Measuring the Efficiency of the Health System in Canada, CIHI

Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) is pleased to announce the release of a new report entitled Developing a Model for Measuring the Efficiency of the Health System in Canada.  The report defines a model for measuring health system efficiency that was informed by consultations and deliberation with senior federal, provincial and territorial health system stakeholders conducted by the Centre for Health Economics and Policy Analysis at McMaster University and by the McMaster Health Forum. The next step will be to use the model to analyze health system efficiency at the regional level in Canada. The results of this analysis will be showcased in a report scheduled for release in the fall of 2013.

CIHI’s goal: to provide timely, accurate and comparable information. CIHI’s data and reports inform health policies, support the effective delivery of health services and raise awareness among Canadians of the factors that contribute to good health.
