Data overload in the long-term care sector can make it challenging for home staff to get a clear picture. It’s tough to make evidence-informed decisions when you aren’t sure what the evidence is telling you! A new organization-level cost estimate using these data, Cost of a Standard Resident Day, is currently under development at CIHI. It will provide a measure of relative cost efficiency of long-term care facilities and support operational planning. 
Join the Canadian Institutes for Health Information for an interactive session that will help you piece together clinical, case mix and financial information to answer questions related to health service delivery in residential care. An overview of the information available through CIHI will be followed by a hands-on case study to help you put the knowledge into practice.
