Data Quality Improvement

Data Quality Improvement

Project Goal & Phases

  • Establish a valid, sustainable, and reliable performance monitoring system for the Champlain Mental Health and Addictions (MH&A) sector. 
    • Phase 1 initially targets the data quality improvement of the service volume and expense data and the selection of associated performance indicators from this data source, for the community mental health and addiction services functional centers. (Timeframe: 2016-17 background work with pilot sites; 2017-18 engagement with all agencies.)
    • Phase 2 targets indicator selection from other data sources and the completion of a performance monitoring system for the Champlain MHA sector.  (Timeframe: 2018-19 environmental scan and draft scorecard completed. Further development on pause since April 2019 due to health system transformation.)
    • Phase 3 will support continued and sustained performance monitoring practices. (Timeframe:  TBD)
