2016 Ontario Hospitals Maternal-Child Services Report


PCMCH is pleased to introduce the 2016 Ontario Hospitals Maternal-Child Services Report . The 2016 Report provides an environmental scan of the hospital-based maternal-child healthcare system in Ontario for the fiscal 2015/16 period. It includes facility-level indicators from 68 participating providers of maternal-newborn and paediatric services, as well as LHIN-level indicators focusing on larger trends in Paediatric (Inpatient, Emergency Department and Mental Health), and Obstetrical data.

The Benchmarking Report is designed to help participating organizations identify potential opportunities to improve clinical and operational efficiency processes as well as quality and utilization management processes.  As such we have recommended to the participating organizations that an internal team of clinical and administrative leaders in their maternal-child program, along with decision support representation review, the report to evaluate how their organization compares to their peers and to their previous year’s performance. We anticipate that this process will provide a vehicle for both identifying and celebrating successes and for creating an action plan to address areas for improvement.

Our commitment to continuous improvement

The Report has been an integral part of PCMCH’s historical performance measurement of the maternal-child health system.  Like all data published by PCMCH, the hospital-based Maternal-Child Healthcare System Indicators are subject to continuous review.

As part of our emerging Strategic Plan, PCMCH is aiming to strengthen its role in measuring and reporting on system level outcomes for the maternal and child healthcare system.  By providing comparable information on a set of key indicators, PCMCH and its partners can not only identify areas of strength and improvement, but inform individuals, families and their care providers how their healthcare system is performing.
