Join CIHI’s Webinar Series on Seniors and Health System Performance
Canada’s population is aging and for the first time in history, there are more Canadians age 65 and over than 15 and under.
Understanding the unique needs of senior populations is essential to:
- Measure quality of care and outcomes to improve health system performance;
- Provide value for money; and
- Inform decisions about how best to meet seniors’ current and future health care needs.
Decision-makers are increasingly using health system performance information to inform policy and drive quality improvement at all levels and across the continuum of care. It is more important than ever that they understand health system data, what it can tell them, and how to use it to monitor health system performance and develop action plans to improve seniors’ health care.
The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) presents a three-part webinar series on seniors and health system performance. Register now to secure your spot!
