On October 15-16, 2014 our Director of Policy and Research attended the fourth Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) Consensus Conference in Toronto, Ontario on behalf of the BCCPA. The conference, which was attended by approximately 70 delegates from government, health authorities, research and academia, focused on what health system performance indicators CIHI should be reporting on as part of its future work.
The feedback and results from the conference will help inform the development of CIHI’s Strategic Plan which it is to finalize next year. This plan will outline the main priorities and indicators CIHI will focus its reporting on throughout the health system including in areas such as acute care, long-term care and home care. Later in 2014/15 CIHI is also planning to release new indicators in the long-term care sector.
