It’s time to talk about wait times again

Wait times for medical care are still way too long in Canada. Here is a CBC story about Emergency Department wait times. The ED tends to be the “canary in the coal mine”….. when the system is inefficient, it tends to manifest itself in the ED.

CIHI has launched a new website called Your Health SystemHere, you can look up key health system performance indicators by province, by region, or by hospital.

All Canadians should push for more health system performance data to be in the public domain. You can’t fix what you don’t measure.
