The objective of this project is to better understand the internal hospital accountability approaches and requirements reporting across hospitals within Ontario.  The project will also include a deeper examination of the nature of the relationship between accountability and performance. The output of this work will inform a larger study looking at approaches to accountability across multiple health care sub-sectors.

The research project will employ a case study methodology which consists of the following componets:

  1. Document review
  2. Key informant interviews with three to four hospitals (teaching and community).
  3. Web-based survey of hospitals across Ontario (teaching and community)
