HSMR: A New Approach for Measuring Hospital Mortality Trends in Canada Core

This publication is the first report in Canada about the Hospital Standardized Mortality Ratio (HSMR), which is an important new measure that can help support efforts to improve patient safety and quality of care in Canadian hospitals. The ratio provides a starting point to assess mortality rate and identify areas for improvement, which may help to reduce hopsital deaths from adverse events.

The ratio provides a starting point to assess mortality rates and identify areas for improvement, which may help to reduce hospital deaths from adverse events. This report includes the first publicly available HSMR trends over three fiscal years ( 2004-2005 to 2006-2007) for 42 health regions and 85 larger acute care facilities/corporations in Canada (excluding Quebec).
