Improving Timeliness of Discharge Abstract Database Data  Core

In 1999, The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) conducted a survey of Canadian acute care facilities in selected provinces regarding the timeliness of data submission to the Discharge Abstract Database (DAD).

The purpose of the survey was to examine data collection and submission processes in facilities to determine what variation exists in data submission and collection practices, with a view to identifying opportunities for improving the timeliness of DAD reports. A total of 616 facilities were included in the sample frame and responses were received from 70%.

This report summarizes the results of the survey. Findings are summarized into staffing issues and coding and abstracting practices.
