Core Functions Identify and promote national health indicators Coordinate and promote development and maintenance of national health information standards Develop and manage health databases and registries Conduct analysis and special studies and participate in research Publish reports and disseminate health information Coordinate and conduct education sessions and conferences
What We Do: Indicator Development Identify and develop priority health indicators (national, provincial, and regional), in the areas of: –Health status/outcomes –Non-medical determinants of health –Health system performance –Community and health system characteristics
Equity Health Indicator Framework Health Status Well-being Health Conditions Human FunctionDeaths Determinants of Health Health Behaviours Living & Working Conditions Personal Resources Environmental Factors Health System Performance AcceptabilityAccessibilityAppropriatenessCompetence ContinuityEffectivenessEfficiencySafety Community and Health System Characteristics CommunityHealth SystemResources
Health Indicators – Regional Level Health Status –Self-rated health –Rates for asthma, diabetes Non-medical determinants of health –Average personal income, low income rate –% post-secondary and high school graduates –Unemployment and youth unemployment rates Health system performance –In-hospital 30-day mortality rates for AMI, stroke –Readmission rates for asthma, pneumonia, AMI, etc –C-section and VBAC rates
What We Do: Data Content Standards Coordinate/promote development and maintenance of health information standards, including: – Financial and Managerial Standards – Data Sets and Grouping Methodologies – Disease/intervention Classifications ICD-10-CA/CCI International Revision of the International Classification Functioning, Disability and Health (formerly ICIDH)
What We Do: Technical Standards The Partnership: – PKI Framework and Guidelines – Enhanced Health Data Model – Unique Identifiers – e-Claims Standards HL7 Implementation Guidelines HL7 Client Messaging Specification International: ISO P P
NeCST - What is it? Focuses on developing standards between providers and payers to support electronic claims submission and adjudication. The project is a unique collaboration between public and private sector payers, national provider associations and vendors. The initiative was established to meet current and future needs for standardization of electronic health claims information.

NeCST – Development and Approval Process NeCST (Special Interest Groups) and the (Technical Architecture Group) define the messages NeCST Executive Steering Committee Approves for ballot submission Submit to HL7 International Once membership is passed it becomes the standard.
NeCST - Benefits Payors National standard provides for consistency in data capture with significant benefits for public and private sector payors: –Reduce cost of managing health billing data –Reduce cost of processing health claims and payment Health System The health care system can further benefit form the success of NeCST through: –Ability to communicate between organizations and across jurisdictions –Ability to collect broader encounter data in a format that could be incorporated in the EHR (i.e. consistent semantics and structure)
NeCST – Benefits Providers Reduce number of interfaces required for adjudication. Send electronic information to public and private sector payers in a consistent messaging format Consumer Increased speed & reliability of claims processing, while also reducing paper based claims processing Reduce delays in obtaining claims information, and contribute to the goal of secured and appropriate sharing of patient data
Next Steps NeCST HL7 Generic Claims, Pharmacy, Chiro- Physio & Preferred Accommodation Messages have passed HL7 v3 membership ballot & are now HL7 ANSI approved standard (2004) Messages from the Vision Care, Oral Health & Physicians SIGs will be submitted for HL7 Membership level ballot (Dec 2004) Once membership level ballot is successfully completed, the NeCST messages will become HL7 ANSI Standard (2005) NeCST Message Specifications -NeCST v1.3 (May 31, 2004) posted to web and will be updated when remaining messages pass membership ballot
Next Steps Develop the NeCST Maintenance, Conformance & Compliance Strategy Complete the NeCST Implementation Guide Update NeCST Message Specifications documentation resulting form Membership ballot

Public Awareness Better health information for better health, e.g. : –Maclean’s cover stories –Extensive media coverage of fact-based reports— part of the public debate –Beyond today’s crisis: regions use indicators as springboard for communicating with public –FPT reporting –Orientation of board members and staff –Annual report now a university textbook
Drugs - The Information Needs What we know Drug expenditure continues to rise; this is not just Canada Prescribed drug expenditure is driving the increase in overall drug expenditure Level of drug spending, growth rate and public share vary across jurisdictions What we don’t know How does drug utilization compare among Canadian populations in terms of: accessibility, appropriateness, effectiveness, efficiency, safety? Is drug spending optimal within the continuum of care? What strategies are most effective in controlling costs while ensuring high quality patient care?

Drugs - The Information Needs How does drug utilization compare among Canadian populations in terms of: accessibility, appropriateness, effectiveness, efficiency, safety? Are differences in the prescribing of drugs due to differences in Prescribers, underlying morbidity, or differences in insurance coverage? Is drug spending optimal within the continuum of care? What strategies are most effective in controlling costs while ensuring high quality patient care?
Expenditures: The Tip of the Iceberg Base –Standards –Data systems Below the water –Claims level data Start with what we have - populate over time
Initial set of indicators Drug Expenditure trends in Canada –Total drug expenditure as a percentage of healthcare spending –Prescribed/non-prescribed drug expenditure as a percentage of total drug expenditure –Hospital drug expenditure as a percentage of total hospital expenditure –Prescribed drug expenditure per capita –Publicly/privately insured and out-of-pocket expenditure as a percentage of prescribed drug expenditure –Average cost per prescription claim Volume changes and mix in Prescribed Drugs in Canada –Percentage of total expenditure and volume of claims by therapeutic class Intensity of Drug Use in Canada –Average number of claims per claimant –The percentage of the population that has made at least one claim –Average number of Defined Daily Doses (DDD) per 1000 residents per day
National Prescription Drug Utilization Information System (NPDUIS)
NPDUIS... to provide accurate and timely national prescription drug utilization information to support public drug programs in the establishment of sound pharmaceutical policies, and the effective management of Canada’s public drug benefit programs The potential to complement and to support other national initiatives such as the Common Drug Review, Best Practices and Post-Marketing Surveillance Other stakeholders, e.g. academic researchers In collaboration with PMPRB
NPDUIS CIHI and the PMPRB work collaboratively to develop and to maintain the National Prescription Drug Utilization Information System (NPDUIS), each organization taking the lead in areas in which that organization has the expertise/ experience.
NPDUIS - The Scope Current: Prescription claims level drug data –Pseudonymous prescription claims level drug data –From publicly financed drug benefit programs in Canada Additional supporting data: –Formulary and Drug Product data –Health Canada Drug Data base –F/P/T Formulary Information –ATC/DDD –Population statistics –Information on Drug Benefit Plans/Programs
NPDUIS - The Scope Expansion of NPDUIS: Prescription claims level drug data –Pseudonymous prescription claims level drug data –From privately financed drug benefit programs in Canada
Uses and Disclosures of Information from NPDUIS The permitted uses of NPDUIS data are set out in the CIHI NPDUIS PIA CIHI will disclose NPDUIS data in accordance with CIHI’s Principles and Policies for the Protection of Personal Health Information, and subject to Agreements between CIHI and the jurisdictions to disclose data under their authority
Uses and Disclosures of Information from NPDUIS CIHI will use NPDUIS data to produce: –An annual statistical report of Pan-Canadian statistics –Reports accessible through CIHI’s web site for authorized and registered users –Longitudinal and other analytical studies to address specific health related questions –Conduct analyses for third parties through ad hoc data/information requests
NPDUIS CONCEPT Health Canada Drug Product Database World Health Organization ATC/DDD Formulary Standardized Drug Product Data Formulary and Drug Product Module Population Data Statistics Canada Population Module Provincial Plan Data/Information Plan Information Module Claims Data Claims Module QUERY & ANALYSIS
Formulary and Drug Product Module Provide longitudinal contextual and statistical comparative information regarding coverage of drug products and other benefits on public formularies across the F/P/T Jurisdictions Support analytical and reporting requirements of the NPDUIS
Claims Module Provide longitudinal descriptive and statistical comparative information regarding drug utilization related to publicly funded drug benefit plans across the F/P/T Jurisdictions
Population Statistics Module Provide contextual and statistical comparative information regarding demographics of the populations of interest to NPDUIS Population statistics will be used as denominators to enhance comparability of drug utilization statistics or indicators Geographic information (i.e. postal code) will be used to provide socioeconomic and demographic information
Plan Information Module Provide longitudinal contextual and comparative information regarding public federal/provincial/territorial drug benefit plans/programs across Canada Relevant references/links to drug benefit plan/program information across the NPDUIS will be essential to support the interpretation of the information derived from each of the other modules, or information derived at the system level, i.e. from the integration of the modules
Drug Utilization Informing on: National Pharmacare National Formulary Catastrophic drug coverage/program Expanded drug coverage Disease management programs Primary care reform Outcome Measures –How healthy are Canadians? –How healthy is our healthcare system?
