Hospital Report 2005: Rehabilitation is the third report produced by the Hospital Report Research Collaborative that focuses on rehabilitation services in Ontario. This is also the first report to be included in our e-Scorecard application. A total of 22 different 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.

This report presents performance indicators for four key areas of hospital activity - System Integration and Change, Client Perspectives, Clinical Utilization and Outcomes, and Financial Performance and Condition. A women's health perspective was integrated into the report to provide a better understanding of issues related to equity (sex differences).

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