The 2013 RHA Indicators Atlas
The 2013 RHA Indicators Atlas measured the health of Manitobans and their use of healthcare services, and found that most Manitobans are living longer and the prevalence of many diseases has decreased, but the health gap between rich and poor has widened. Researchers analyzed data using more than 70 indicators of health status and healthcare use to compare results from previous studies. Representatives from all 5 Regional Heath Authorities (RHAs), Manitoba Health, and U of M researchers collaborated in the creation of this report. Information such as: rate of improvement or prevalence among chronic disease indicators, how many people are in nursing homes, how many people were hospitalized, how many visited a doctor and how many filled prescriptions are also available in this report. Together with similar reports published in 2009 and 2003, the data provides a picture of our province's health trends spanning almost 20 years.
