Critical Care Strategy

Critical Care Information System (CCIS)

The Critical Care Information System (CCIS) is a near real-time source of province-wide information on capacity and utilization of Ontario’s critical care units supporting adult, paediatric, and neonatal patients. CCIS captures data on each patient in Ontario’s approximately 250 critical care units (Level 2 and 3) to better understand system capacity, access to critical care, quality of care and outcomes for critically ill patients. CCIS also captures data on at-risk patients receiving adult or paediatric Critical Care Response Team services that extend the skills of the Intensive Care Unit to the general ward and facilitate early identification and prompt mobilization of critical care resources.

CCIS, as a prescribed registry under PHIPA, is hosted by Hamilton Health Sciences with CritiCall Ontario responsible for technical and operational management of the information system. Critical Care Services Ontario (CCSO) is responsible for strategic oversight of the CCIS. This includes responsibility for regular review of data elements, changes to data capture, data review and analysis, and data reporting for all CCSO stakeholder unit, regional and provincial level reports. Please visit CCSO’s website for more information about CCIS.
