Abstract

This article describes the software developed in the process of creating the Population Health Information System. The software can be applied to a range of administrative data and provides standardized data on the health status and health care use of populations by generating population-based rates of discrete events. The standardized approach permits construction of a comprehensive, comparative picture for residents of defined geographic regions. The addition of a user friendly graphic interface will permit regional planners to do their own data analyses and allow out-of-province researchers to adopt the system for their own uses.
