The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) has a wealth of statistical information waiting to be mined.
On Dec 18th, Jeremy Veillard, CIHI’s vice-president of research, presents It’s all about the data: What CIHI can do for you and what you can do with CIHI data – today and tomorrow.
This seminar outlines what CIHI data sources are available for researchers and students; plans for data acquisition, access, integration and timeliness; and what data sets Canadian researchers might be able to put their hands on in the future.
Veillard, President of the Canadian Association for Health Services and Policy Research (CAHSPR) for 2013–2014, will also describe what CIHI is doing with the data: from research and analytical work to performance measurement, performance reporting and management tools as well as capacity building for health sector managers. As well, he will address new frontiers for CIHI in data surveillance, predictive modelling, analytics, research and performance reporting.
The seminar will be held on Wednesday Dec. 18 in CRLB 119 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. All are welcome to attend. The seminar will be available remotely for those who are unable to attend.
Veillard, an assistant professor (status only) at the University of Toronto’s Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation, has expertise in health policy development and health system reform, as well as in evaluation and health system performance measurement. He has extensive professional experience in the health sector in both Europe and Canada and was the regional adviser for health policy and equity at the World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Office for Europe from 2007 to 2010.
His previous experience includes leading work on the Health Results Team at the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, serving as a policy advisor at the WHO/EURO in charge of hospital reforms and working as a hospital administrator in France.
