Children’s Healthcare Canada analytics and reporting activities are primarily focused on two initiatives: The Paediatric Rehabilitation Reporting System (PRRS), and responding to individual member ad hoc data requests. Effective January 1, 2019, the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) has made paediatric benchmarking reports available through their Portal business intelligence tool.


What is the Paediatric Rehabilitation Reporting System (PRRS)?

PRRS is a reporting system that captures and shares data from paediatric rehabilitation centres across the country. It is a vehicle to ensure pan-national rehabilitation data can inform an accountable, transformational service delivery system for children with disabilities or chronic conditions that balances the clients’ need and economic realities.

Creating this standardized approach in the collection, analysis and dissemination of valid and reliable outcome measures related to rehabilitation services for children and youth with disabilities within Canada will allow the healthcare system to measure and compare the quality of paediatric rehabilitation services in order to improve services and outcomes.


The Paediatric Rehabilitation Reporting System will allow rehabilitation centres across Canada to access information that they need to:

  • Improve health outcomes for children and youth with disabilities; 

  • Benchmark institutional performance over time and across jurisdictions;

  • Identify opportunities to improve patient care;

  • Determine best practices & opportunities for increased efficiency;

  • Ensure efficient and coordinated care; 

  • Link datasets across the continuum of care and across the country;

  • Aid administrators in planning and decision making;

  • Inform policy & practice based on evidence;

  • Provide a sense of context of the environment in which the centre operates; and

  • Ensure strategic alignment and excellence in care across the nation.

Making this Vision a Reality

Thanks to the dedication of many individuals from across Children’s Healthcare Canada’s rehab community and the generosity and commitment of the Bilodeau Family, The Groupe Perron, Power Corporation of Canada, and CIBC Capital Markets Trading - Children's Miracle Day, the Paediatric Rehabilitation Reporting System is now a live powerful national tool to help rehabilitation centres across the country make better decisions based on evidence, and will provide robust, standardized data to improve access to care and improve health outcomes.
