This lecture uses Manitoba, Canada as a case example to highlight a method for measuring quality of care using administrative data.  It is based on the article “Can the Quality of Care in Family Practice Be Measured Using Administrative Data?” [abstract] that appeared in the December 2006 issue of Health Services Research.


The work discussed here was conducted as part of a larger study at the Manitoba Centre for Health Policy (MCHP). MCHP is a research unit within the Department of Community Health Sciences at the University of Manitoba. Research conducted at MCHP is population–based and focuses on the health care use of Manitobans.
