Health System Analytics

The electronic collection and sharing of health care data will yield a wealth of information for health system managers and planners – those responsible for planning and managing health care in Ontario. The electronic data captured, once anonymized to remove personal identification information, can support the following:

  • Population demographics: studying the population of Ontario and health care client cohorts of interest, to support system planners, service integrators and program managers
  • Population health data: studying the health status of population groups/cohorts
  • Service utilization data: analyzing the type and number of health services consumed by Ontarians across the health care sector
  • Health human resources data: analyzing the number, types and location of health human resources (e.g. doctors, nurses) available and working in the health system    
  • Financial data: analyzing the financial expenditures associated with the delivery of health services 
  • Performance data: analyzing performance indicators for tracking the performance of the health system and for supporting reporting requirements

The analytics can provide a wealth of information for those who:

  • Analyze population health trends (e.g. public health)
  • Budget and plan health care resources 
  • Identify catchment areas with specific needs
  • Monitor services and data requirements
  • Monitor systems for performance
  • Conduct research into ways to improve health care
  • Define health care policy in Ontario
