CPSS: A Major Advancement in the Management of Healthcare in Quebec
The CPSS Portal is a user-friendly tool that enables province-wide analysis and comparison of financial and clinical data. It is currently used by 30 healthcare establishments, as well as the Ministry of Health and Social Services in Quebec.
With the Portal and its detailed graphics, it is now possible to analyse data on short stays, day surgery, emergency department as well as outpatient visits. Users can now query data by selecting different indicators that will provide, for instance, the average encounter costs with a surgical procedure or primary diagnosis. Beyond costs, the Portal also offers some quality-of-care indicators, providing insight to initiate discussions about best medical practices.
