Hospital Performance Series Reports

The Hospital Performance Series Report provides Ontario hospitals with comparative provincial data and change ideas to support quality improvement for select topic areas. Each topic area is identified and developed in collaboration with the sector.

At present, the report focuses on Choosing Wisely Canada indicators with the goal of minimizing unnecessary pre-operative testing before low risk surgeries. The reports were created by Health Quality Ontario in partnership with Choosing Wisely Canada. Data was provided by the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences.

The report was last updated in November 2017 with data from fiscal year 2016/17. Currently, there are no plans to refresh the report. We apologize for the inconvenience. If you have any questions, please contact
