CIHI’s Indicator Library

This library brings together metadata for health indicators in a convenient location on CIHI’s website. For each indicator, definitions, methodologies and characteristics such as reporting level are summarized in a standard template. Indicator results can also be accessed from hyperlinks provided in the library. The indicators in the library are organized according to CIHI’s Health System Performance Measurement Framework, but the tool also allows you to search for indicators by areas of need and reporting levels.
