Chronic Disease Registry


Includes seven sub-registries: Diabetes, Asthma, COPD, Heart Failure, Hypertension, Ischemic Heart Disease, and Stroke. Data comprise hospitalization and physician visit data from the Canadian Chronic Disease Surveillance System, as well as provincial lab data for diabetes.


Data for the Provincial Chronic Disease Registry (CDR) comes from the Canadian Chronic Disease Surveillance System (CCDSS) as well as provincial lab data for diabetes. The CCDSS uses data collected through hospitalization and physician visits. This is a designated registry under PHIA with many sub-registries. The CDR currently reports incidence and prevalence at the provincial and RHA levels; work on Primary Healthcare Areas is underway. (Note: The CCDSS has the limitation that it does not include data on visits to physicians paid by arrangements other than fee-for-service. In Newfoundland and Labrador, approximately two-thirds of general practitioners and specialists are paid on a fee-for-service basis and one-third are paid by salary.)
