The RCA has released its 2021/22 Rehabilitative Care System Performance Report.

This annual, high-level assessment of rehabilitative care across Ontario is designed to support evidence-based practice and system-wide improvement, with indicators addressing population health, patient experience, provider experience and value/efficiency.

Notably, the 2021/22 report:

  • captures data collected during the COVID-19 pandemic and reflects significant pandemic-related impacts and pressures
  • includes data from the RCA’s Rehab Provider Experience Survey launched in September 2022 (please note this data is shared in the summary report but not yet on the dashboard)
  • illustrates notably different data trends than in previous reporting years, with 2021/22 showing more pronounced changes in wait times for in-home rehab and rates of emergency department visits for falls among older adults in the community

Accessing the 2021/22 report and dashboard

The dashboard can be accessed through a secure portal on the Ontario Hospital Association website. The 2021/22 Rehabilitative Care System Performance Report is part of an information package that includes:

  • an interactive dashboard with graphics illustrating site and organizational data, trends and regional variability; and
  • a technical manual that provides a substantial background, glossary of terms, indicator definitions and more.

Should you require support using the dashboard or its data to inform quality improvement initiatives, Secretariat staff are available to assist.
