Les séminaires de recherche sur les systèmes de santé présentent : « Improving Quality of Healthcare: Is Data Access the Golden Bullet? »
Dr. Alan Forster , Ph. D.
Professeur en médecine
Vendredi le 16 octobre 2009
14 h à 16 h
À propos de la présentation (en anglais seulement)
Improved healthcare quality is an important, but often poorly attained, goal for our publicly funded health system. One explanation for our inability to address quality problems adequately is a limited access to information describing health care processes and outcomes. While data exist within in clinical and administrative information systems, there are many reasons why they remain inaccessible to various stakeholders for quality assessment. In this presentation, I will review some of these data sources within a hospital environment and some of the challenges in accessing them. Next, I will highlight practical solutions to improved access to data. Finally, I will point out that access to information is of limited benefit if organizational structures are not established to support data driven decision making.
À propos du conférencier (en anglais seulement)
Dr. Alan J. Forster is a general internist and Scientific Director of Clinical Quality and Performance Management at the Ottawa Hospital. He is an Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Ottawa and Scientist in the Clinical Epidemiology Program at the Ottawa Health Research Institute, where his research focuses on patient safety and quality improvement. He has been the recipient of several prestigious awards recognizing his work within the field of health services research, including a Career Scientist Award with the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and an Early Research Award from the Ontario Government’s Ministry of Research and Innovation. He has performed seminal work evaluating the incidence of adverse events following discharge from hospital. This work has lead to the development of strategies to improve care during the transition home from hospital. He is also leading in the development of a hospital data warehouse, which will serve as a supporting infrastructure for a research program in patient safety and quality of care. He has over 45 publications in peer review journals. In addition to his significant contributions to a quality and safety program at the Ottawa Hospital, he provides ongoing scientific advice regarding quality of care to provincial and national organizations, such as the Ontario Health Quality Council and the Canadian Institute for Health Information.
