Pan-Canadian Primary Health Care Indicators  Core

In 2006, CIHI released a set of 105 pan-Canadian primary health care (PHC) indicators that were identified through a consensus process as being necessary to measure and compare PHC performance at multiple levels within and across jurisdictions in Canada.

Building on this, in 2012, CIHI updated 2 suites of indicators to meet the needs of policy-makers and health system managers, as well as PHC providers.

Broad stakeholder consultations were undertaken to ensure that the updated indicator definitions were

  • Developed in alignment with an identified data source
  • Consistent with current clinical guidelines
  • Reflected important aspects of PHC

In 2016, based on the 2012 Pan-Canadian Primary Health Care Indicator Update Report, an updated chartbook profiled the results of a selected group of PHC indicators, using a range of data sources, with the aim of providing an integrated view of PHC information in Canada.

No. Regardless of the language in which the publication itself is available, the series screen provides a general description of the publications in that series and, for each edition, gives you the option of choosing the language and the media type (for example, paper or PDF) of the publication that you want. CIHI often publishes reports in both English and French, though there is sometimes a delay between the publication of the English version and the availablility of the French version. The series information will always be available in both English and French, even if the report itself is only available in one language.
