Hospital Report Research Initiative
ICES is a key research collaborator on Ontario’s hospital report cards. Many faculty hold joint appointments with ICES and the University of Toronto's Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation.
Led by the University of Toronto, the goal of the Hospital Report Research Collaborative is to help Ontario health care managers support quality improvement and demonstrate accountability. This research collaborative develops reports on hospital performance using the balanced scorecard format. A broad range of sectors is covered in the reports, including
- acute care
- emergency department care
- complex continuing care
- rehabilitation and
- mental health
Sponsored by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and the Ontario Hospital Association, this work has resulted in one of the most comprehensive sets of performance measurement reports internationally.
