Ontario Mental Health Reporting System (OMHRS)
The Ontario Mental Health Reporting System (OMHRS) contains data on adult mental health hospitalizations in hospitals or in psychiatric hospitals. Records in OMHRS are updated at admission, discharge, for significant changes in health status and quarterly. OMHRS contains a broad array of information from scores and scales for assessment of patients’ mental health and status.

- OMHRS includes mental health data from Ontario facilities with designated adult mental health beds and from 3 facilities outside of Ontario that submit data on a voluntary basis. It also includes records from child/adolescent mental health beds from 2 psychiatric hospitals, and it may include records for patients younger than 18 who were admitted to an adult mental health bed.
- Reported mental health data from OMHRS should be complemented by child and youth mental health bed access from the Discharge Abstract Database (DAD) and mental-health related emergency department visits from the National Ambulatory Care Reporting System (NACRS).
