A researcher has inquired about the manuals for the National Ambulatory Care Reporting System (NACRS) - https://secure.cihi.ca/estore/productFamily.htm?pf=PFC3081&lang=en&media=0) and DAD (Discharge Abstract Database) - https://secure.cihi.ca/estore/productSeries.htm?pc=PCC78.
How might he acquire? Are they part of our DAD licence? They are hoping to acquire them quickly.
The abstract and manuals for the Discharge Abstract Database (DAD) are located on the EFT, specifically in the CIHI Safe: /MAD_CIHI_ICIS_DAM/Root/discharge-abstract-database-2015-16/Other_documents.
Unfortunately the DLI does not have manuals for the National Ambulatory Care Reporting System (NACRS). You would have to contact CIHI for this. I’ve listed their information below:
