Hospital Report 2007: Rehabilitation is the fourth in a series of hospital reports that uses a balanced scorecard approach that focuses on rehabilitation services in Ontario.

A total of 23 indicators were chosen by health care providers, managers, and researchers to examine the four important areas of rehabilitation care that form a balanced scorecard - system integration and change, clinical utilization and outcomes, client perspectives, and financial performance and condition. Local Integration Network (LHIN) level analyses are included in this report.

This balanced scorecard approach describes a comprehensive performance measurement system for rehabilitation hospitals and hospital-based programs in Ontario and identifies successes within the hospital system as well as important areas for quality improvement. High performing hospitals within quadrants are identified.

Technical Summaries describing the methodological approaches used to develop this report are available.
