The Financial Management of Acute Care in Canada

The Financial Management of Acute Care in Canada: A Review of Funding, Performance Monitoring and Financial Reporting Practices, is an independent research project conducted by Dr. Ian McKillop, Dr. George Pink and Ms Lina Johnson, and sponsored by the Canadian Institute for Health Information and the Quebec Ministry of Health.

This study provides a comprehensive inventory of practices related to the management of the financial resources dedicated primarily to hospital-delivered acute care in Canada for the fiscal year April 1, 2000 through March 31, 2001.

For each province and territory, the study reports on three issues related to the management of financial resources:

Observation of Canadian practice indicates that provinces and territories use one or more of eight different funding methods. The way in which the funding methods are applied depends upon the mandate of the organization receiving funds. The study finds a trend toward population-driven funding approaches, although the specific steps used to generate population-based funding allocations differs significantly among jurisdictions.
