HOBIC's second report focuses exclusively on measures in the acute care setting in Ontario from December 2006 to March 2012. This report is divided into five main sections: hospital coverage, assessment completeness, score changes, declines in activities of daily living and therapeutic self-care. 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.
