I made an update to some data and graphs for existing and new data regarding some of the intervention measurements made in the healthcare system in Ontario. The official press release excerpt is below.
As the province's advisor on health care quality, Health Quality Ontario (HQO) has released the 4th edition of its Ontario Health Technology Maps Project Report. This report is unique as it looks at the adoption of evidence-based medical and surgical procedures and laboratory tests that can be tracked through existing databases. It provides information to health care professionals on variations in care across the province, and changes needed to improve the quality of health care for Ontarians. The Maps Project Report is also designed to empower the public and stimulate educated discussion with their health care providers.
Looking ahead to 2015, I've already started a new presentation dashboard that will be embedded directly within the framework of our website. Based on the past data collected, this new presentation will incorporate a streamlined interface which is not only useful on the web but also in print as well. Keep an eye on this area of the Health Quality Ontario website.
