Abstract:

"Over the past three years, wait times for priority procedures have remained virtually unchanged, while the number of procedures performed has continued to rise. Some patients still wait longer than the recommended time frames in all provinces. Over the past three years, there has been little change in the proportion of people treated within the benchmarks. About 8 out of 10 patients received priority surgical procedures within these targets, while 97% of radiation therapy was delivered within 4 weeks (28 days). Over the same time frame, there was an increase in the number of patients who received care. The largest change was seen in hip replacements, with a 17% increase in the number of procedures performed. Despite the increase in the number of procedures, wait times remained virtually unchanged."--Pages 1-2.
