New CIHI Report: Health System Efficiency
New CIHI Report: Measuring the Level and Determinants of Health System Efficiency in Canada
What factors affect the efficiency of Canada’s health system? Why are some of Canada’s health regions more efficient than others?
The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) examines these and other questions in a new report from the Canadian Population Health Initiative: Measuring the Level and Determinants of Health System Efficiency in Canada. Building on findings from the CIHI report Developing a Model for Measuring the Efficiency of the Health System in Canada [https://secure.cihi.ca/free_products/HSE_TechnicalReport_EN_web.pdf], this study uses a made-in-Canada model to measure health system efficiency and shed light on the factors that help explain variations in efficiency across Canada’s health regions.
Complementary products are available in addition to the full report, including a public summary and an Analysis in Brief that highlights the key findings.
