The 2013 Canadian Hospital Reporting Project (CHRP)

March 6, 2013 The Ottawa Hospital welcomes the public release of the 2013 Canadian Hospital Reporting Project (CHRP) results. The CHRP, an initiative of the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), provides information about the performance of Canadian acute-care hospitals. For more information on the Canadian Hospital Reporting Project, please visit CIHI’s website.

The data from CHRP is one more helpful measure that allows TOH  to review its practices and ensure patient care gets even better over time. As part of a commitment to continuous improvement, The Ottawa Hospital works every day to become as efficient and high-performing as possible – without compromising the quality of care or patient safety.

It’s important to note that the data from this 2013 update are more than a year old, meaning TOH is already aware of the areas in which we excel compared to our peer hospitals. We are also conscious of the areas that require improvement. As such, the CHRP data are already being used to guide the planning and implementation of hospital-wide efforts aimed at changing staff behaviours and improving clinical processes.

Our guiding principle is to provide the best quality care at the lowest cost. As we continue the process of building a high-performing hospital, we will continue to track quality and performance, with the patient’s needs at the centre of all that we do.
