Time to Close the Gap: Report Card on Wait Times in Canada (2014)

For the past two years the Wait Time Alliance (WTA) has reported a worrisome trend of little to no progress in reducing waits for a range of necessary medical care in Canada. A review of the 2014 provincial wait-time data reveals that some provinces have or are beginning to make substantive and sustained progress to reduce wait times in the four initial areas where benchmarks exist — notably Ontario, Newfoundland and Labrador and Saskatchewan.

Alberta Bone and Joint Health Institute

ABJHI is a national leader in transforming bone and joint health care to produce better patient outcomes and more efficient service delivery. This work has become essential and urgent. The world population is aging and growing. People in developed nations are living longer. There are more people needing better services and expecting great results. This puts health care agencies and facilities under pressure to find ways of delivering services more efficiently and effectively as demand and costs rise while the capacity to pay diminishes. Bone and joint health care is what we work on every day. Nothing else. As ABJHI’s singular area of focus, we are highly knowledgeable about every aspect of it – services, practices, protocols, devices, drugs, medical facilities. We know the terms and speak the vocabulary used by orthopaedic surgeons, rheumatologists and other health care professionals who deliver and manage musculoskeletal care.

Canadian Index of Wellbeing: How are Ontarians Really doing?

This report, our first produced provincially, draws on data collected for the CIW’s national report in 2012. In keeping with the CIW’s mission, the report focuses on three principal objectives. First, based on rigorous research, it describes how the quality of life for Ontarians has shifted from 1994 to 2010, and how those shifts compare to all Canadians. Basically, we ask a simple question: “How are Ontarians really Doing?” both overall and within each domain, and in comparison with Canada. Second, it encourages policy makers and government leaders to make decisions based on solid and compelling evidence. Third, it empowers Ontarians to advocate for change that responds to their needs and values. Collectively, we should be asking, “How can we do better?”

Building better health care: Policy opportunities for Ontario

The Institute for Competitiveness & Prosperity finds that, overall, Ontario could get better value for money from its health care spending. Ontario is among the jurisdictions with the highest total per capita health care spending in the OECD, with spending 33 percent above the OECD average. Yet despite exceptional resources, Ontario falls short when comparing the province’s overall health care performance to that of international peers. Countries that spend less on health care have comparable or better health care outcomes, higher quality care, and more extensive public coverage than Ontario.
