Primary Care Quality Indicators

physicianAll clinics participating in PIN regularly track their performance on a range of Primary Care Quality Indicators. This enables them to regularly review their performance as a basis for further change.  

The Primary Care Quality Indicators used in PIN are derived from evidence-based indicators originally developed by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), with the assistance of clinician experts. They measure recommended screening and chronic disease management processes in six areas of primary care:

  • prevention
  • diabetes management
  • asthma management
  • congestive heart failure management
  • hypertension management
  • coronary artery disease management

In addition to these, trial indicators for depression screening and patient access have been developed and are being trialed at some PIN sites.  

A summary of the Primary Care Quality Indicators tracked within PIN is available in the Manitoba Primary Care Quality Indicators Guide (Short Version) PDF.

A more detailed list of the Primary Care Quality Indicators, including a description of how they are calculated, is available in the Manitoba Primary Care Quality Indicators Guide (Long Version) PDF
