Hospital Report: Rehabilitation

The objectives of Hospital Report: Rehabilitation are to facilitate local quality improvement programs within hospitals and to support hospitals’ accountability to the communities they serve.

Hospital Report: Rehabilitation uses a balanced scorecard to report on the performance of Ontario hospitals that provide rehabilitation in designated beds. Various indicators within the following four important areas are utilized to assess performance:

  • System Integration and Change;
  • Clinical Utilization and Outcomes;
  • Client Perspectives; and
  • Financial Performance and Condition.

System Integration and Change assesses the ability of hospitals with designated rehabilitation beds to adapt to a dynamic health care environment. Clinical Utilization and Outcomes evaluates hospitals’ clinical performance for clients that are cared for in designated rehabilitation beds. Client Perspectives describes clients’ perceptions of the care they receive during inpatient rehabilitation. Financial Performance and Condition addresses measures of efficiency and productivity. Hospital Report 2005: Rehabilitation, the first hospital-specific report, was released in July, 2005.

Hospital Report: Rehabilitation is part of the Hospital Report Research Collaborative, which is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC) and the Ontario Hospital Association. The research is being conducted by a consortium of organizations led by the Department of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation at the University of Toronto.
