Health Outcomes for Better Information and Care (HOBIC): Acute Care in Ontario 2011

Wodchis WP, Corallo A, Ma X, White P, Pringle D, de Nobrega P, Iron K, McGillis Hall L. July 2012

HOBIC's first provincial report focuses exclusively on measures in the acute care setting from December 2006 to March 2011. The report is divided into four main sections: hospital coverage, assessment completeness, score changes and declines in activities of daily living. Comparisons are also provided, where possible, between small and large hospital sites. While individual hospitals are able to view and use their own HOBIC data, this report adds value through linkages with other databases, such as the Canadian Institute for Health Information's Discharge Abstract Database, and by creating aggregate benchmarking across participating HOBIC sites.
