“The Canadian Hospital Reporting Project (CHRP) is a national quality improvement initiative from the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI). CHRP’s web-based, interactive tool gives hospital decision-makers, policy-makers and Canadians access to indicator results for more than 600 facilities from every province and territory in Canada.
CIHI selected 21 clinical and 9 financial indicators for CHRP, based on their relevance to performance measurement and quality improvement. The selected indicators measure:
- Clinical effectiveness;
- Patient safety;
- Appropriateness of care;
- Accessibility; and
- Financial performance.
These indicators were chosen after reviewing existing hospital performance indicators and collaborating with experts in the field. The goal of CHRP is to foster quality improvement, learning and action.
