Hospital Standardized Mortality Ratio
The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) is in charge of publishing the results of the standardized mortality ratio (HSMR) for hospitals across Ontario.
Since December 13, 2012, the HSMR has made public the results of over 40 Ontario hospitals. Although many hospitals comparable to Montfort reflect the same HSMR trend, it is important to avoid comparisons between hospitals. Many factors enter into the equation, including the category of patients and the acuity of the cases.
The HSMR is another tool that Hôpital Montfort uses to monitor its progress and improve the quality of care based on results.
