Guelph General Hospital (GGH) has the second lowest number of hospital deaths (Hospital Standardized Mortality Ratio, HSMR) in Canada, a substantial improvement from previous years. Marianne Walker, president and CEO of GGH, said that over the past 2 years, the hospital has been able to identify a number of projects in order to promote safety and improve patient care. The improvement in GGH’s HSMR results is just one example of how organizations can use CIHI’s Your Health System online reporting tool to track outcomes and help provide the highest quality of care to patients and their families.
