Definition:

A standardized set of financial and statistical reporting guidelines and definitions developed for use in reporting health care activities. It was developed to facilitate timely, effective management information by enabling historical and inter-facility comparisons. The MIS standards are national standards that provide an integrated approach to managing financial and statistical data related to the operations of Canadian health services organizations. In Manitoba, aggregated or summarized financial and statistical administrative data are submitted to Manitoba Health by Regional Health Authorities (RHAs). The data span the range of services provided by the RHAs, including acute, chronic, and rehabilitation hospital services, personal care homes, and community services including primary care clinics, home care, mental health, and public health. Manitoba Health submits the annual provincial MIS database file to the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI).
