Key Takeaway Points
1. NACRS is a rich standardized dataset which
provides you with operational information to
improve efficiency as well as national benchmark
information that can be used for a variety of
purposes
2. Use of a national standard dataset, NACRS, to
standardize ED information had profound positive
effects at Vancouver Coastal Health.
3. Many jurisdictions and hospitals with data
warehouses can reap immense benefits from the
adoption of NACRS and other CIHI data standards.

What is NACRS?
•
NACRS – CIHI’s National Ambulatory Care Reporting
System – supports data collection and reporting on
Emergency Department (ED) and ambulatory care
(day surgery and ambulatory clinics).
•
CIHI (Canadian Institute for Health Information) is an
independent not-for-profit organization providing
essential data and analysis on Canada’s health
system and the health of Canadians.
•
CIHI provides information for pan-Canadian analyses
from databases supported by national standards.

NACRS in B.C.
•
In September 2010, the BC Ministry of Health
mandated NACRS reporting for 15 high-volume
ED sites by April 2012 including 4 sites in VCH.
•
NACRS ED Level 2 reporting was mandated:
submission of wait times data elements plus 2
“pick-list” data elements
• ED Discharge Diagnosis (CED-DxS)
• Presenting Complaint List

VCH: BC NACRS Mandate
•
VCH’s standardized ED data in warehouse
•
No Vendor - Reduced Costs & Saved Time
•
Minor modifications required
•
Submitted Level 1 data 9 months after mandate
opposed to 20 months
•
More time to work with CIHI to improve COT
descriptors & discharge diagnosis to be ready for
Level 2 in May 2012.

Summary/Conclusions
•
Standardizing ED information in data warehouse
to NACRS standard definitions had profound
effects at VCH.
•
NACRS is a rich standardized dataset which
provides immediate and immense benefits.
•
Many other jurisdictions and hospitals have data
warehouses. If already not using NACRS and/or
other CIHI data standards, we recommend you
investigate them and update your systems
accordingly.
