      Purpose/Objectives: Your Health System: Insight is the beginning of CIHI’s analytical centre where information is integrated together with sophisticated, yet user friendly, business intelligence software. Its main purpose is to provide health system stakeholders a user friendly analytical tool where they can access timely, relevant and actionable information to answer key questions that matter to them. They can track their progress monthly and compare to their peers, identify factors that might contribute to their performance, and investigate potential savings.

      Methodology/Approach: YHS: Insight brings together indicator results, clinical and administrative data, and cost estimates of the acute and ambulatory care sector. In this session, we will use various user stories to demonstrate how data is transformed into meaningful information to support health system planning and quality improvement. Users of Insight can delve into emergency department and acute inpatient data to answer questions such as: what are characteristics of patients who wait the longest to see a doctor in emergency? What are the top three reasons patients are being readmitted to a hospital? Are there efficiency opportunities to discover in our operation and utilization data?

      Finding/Results: The number of users for Insight is continuing to grow, and they’re logging in to use it more-and-more. To date, feedback from Insight users has been tremendously positive and an evaluation of usability is planned. Through the demonstrations and testimonies, the audience will see how Your Health System: Insight will support the needs of facility and regional health system managers and their efforts to measure, monitor and improve performance, by offering timely, relevant, and actionable data.

      Conclusion/Implication/Recommendations: As the health system moves to more integrated care across the continuum, CIHI is working towards providing integrated reporting that supports improvement of performance and outcomes. CIHI will actively engage stakeholders to ensure that Insight is evolving in meaningful ways for the acute care sector, as well as for other health sectors as the tool is expanded into long-term care, home care, and beyond.

      140 Character Summary: Your Health System: Insight helps clients better understands their performance indicators and explores potential savings in operation and utilization.
