Measuring and reporting on health system performance in Canada: Opportunities for improvement



Today the Health Council of Canada released Measuring and reporting on health system performance in Canada: Opportunities for improvement. The paper calls on governments to set clear policy goals with both measurable health outcomes and supporting health indicators in order to hold health system leaders accountable for performance.

The paper asserts that to support performance improvement efforts across our health system in Canada, there must be alignment of provincial and territorial reporting on health system performance within a national framework. The paper provides recommendations to governments, at the same time highlighting innovative practices across Canada and in the United Kingdom and Australia that can provide a way forward.

Download the paper to learn about the many complexities of performance reporting in each of Canada’s provinces and territories.
