Hospital administrators, measurement experts, patient councils, data providers, and other hospital safety experts in Ontario and Canada have reviewed existing and new quality indicators and made recommendations for public reporting.
REVIEW THE PATIENT SAFETY INDICATOR REVIEW REPORT
Health Quality Ontario will phase in additional patient safety reporting within the new few years.
The hospital patient safety indicators are based on data collected by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, which is reported to them by all hospitals in Ontario through the Self-Reporting Initiative (SRI).
If you have a question about system performance and reporting on the performance of Ontario’s health system, please email us at SystemPerformance@HQOntario.ca.
