Addiction Treatment Data Elements and Provincial Service Categories Project

Project Lead:

Claudio Rocca, DATIS-CAMH


A review of mandatory data elements and Provincial Services Categories currently collected by the Province’s addiction treatment data system (DATIS) to ensure the integrity of each element, its utility for planning, and accountability, and its alignment with the Province’s Addiction Strategy.

How will this project benefit Ontario?

Population needs change over time. It is important to revisit required data fields regularly to ensure that the data collected accurately reflect current needs and system capacity to meet those needs.  This helps policymakers, planners, providers and researchers address areas needing improvement to ensure the best possible outcomes for Ontarians.

How can you get involved?

Representatives from a broad cross-section of participating agencies, and other stakeholders, will be selected to participate in the Data Treatment Review Committee.  The Committee will evaluate each of the current required fields and recommend other important treatment outcome measures and indicators for inclusion.
