Canadian Paediatric Decision Support Network (CPDSN)

What is CAPHC - CPDSN?

The Canadian Paediatric Decision Support Network (CPDSN) was created in 2005 to provide hospital leaders and policymakers with insightful quantitative data and comparability analysis of specialty paediatric services across its member organizations. Today CAPHC - CPDSN represents 23 health care organizations across the continuum of care, which includes acute paediatric, community, and rehabilitation centres.

Our members represent professionals from senior management, medical staff, decision support and quality management in paediatric health facilities.

History of CAPHC-CPDSN

Originally called the “Paediatric Data Share Project” (PDSP), the group began in 1995 as a project designed to facilitate the access of comparative clinical information for hospitals specializing in paediatric care. The official agreement was signed in the spring of 1996 between the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, the Izaak Walton Killam Hospital, the British Columbia Children’s Hospital and the Alberta Children’s Hospital. Between 1996 and 2002, five additional facilities joined the collective and the organization was re-branded as the “Canadian Paediatric Decision Support Network” (CPDSN).

In 2004, CPDSN approached CAPHC to discuss partnership opportunities to coordinate an integrated approach for data sharing and collaborative initiatives as one national voice. By 2005, a collaborative partnership was established and CPDSN became the CAPHC-CPDSN within the CAPHC organization.

Building on CPDSN’s decade of achievements in data quality improvements and benchmarking activities, the new CAPHC-CPDSN is dedicated to promoting and enhancing Canadian paediatric data sharing and best practices.
