Term: Population-Based Health Information System (POPULIS)

Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2021-11-22


Formerly called Population Health Information System (PHIS), POPULIS was developed by MCHP to provide population based information on the health and health care utilization of Manitobans. It links the health of the population to its use of health care services and to economic and social factors. POPULIS tracks health status and health care use based on the region in which people live, not where they receive care. Analyses can be provided at various geographic levels including Regional Health Authorities, municipalities, or hospital service areas.
