Routinely collected data from electronic health databases provide unique opportunities to conduct health surveillance studies. This study used the CANHEART big data cohort of over 10.3 million adults, created through linkage of multiple health administrative databases, to examine cardiovascular preventive care, risk factor burden and cardiovascular disease incidence in Ontario, Canada. Compared with estimates from health survey data, risk factor rates were similar, with the exception of glucose and blood pressure measures, and obesity rates.
