Ontarians trust that health care facilities are clean and safe places that will help them get better when they are sick. However some people are affected by health care-associated infections (HAIs) that can cause illness, complications or even death.
Prevention and control of these infections in hospitals, long-term care homes and clinics is key to keeping patients safe.
The Ontario Health Profile (OHP) explores innovative approaches that visualize public health data and engages users to accelerate population health monitoring.
This session will provide an overview of innovative approaches being used to visualize public health data and engage health professionals to accelerate population health monitoring. Specifically, the session will showcase the new HAI story that has been created for the Ontario Health Profile, including both a “primer” infographic as well as a more detailed interactive web report with local level data.
