Ontario and LHIN 2013/14 Stroke Report Cards and Progress Reports
The Ontario Stroke Report Cards were developed in 2009 to provide a concise mechanism for communicating stroke care performance in the province. Report cards are produced annually for Ontario and each of the 14 Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs). Each year, the Stroke Evaluation & Quality Committee (SEQC) Knowledge Translation and Accountability Subcommittee reviews the indicators to assess data availability, system impact, and the knowledge translation strategy.
In this year’s report, for the first time, a progress report is also included for each LHIN. In contrast to the stroke report card where LHIN performance is compared to provincial high performers, the progress report evaluates each LHIN's progress in achieving best practice by comparing their current performance to their previous 3-year performance.
