According to the Fraser Institute, a survey across 12 medical specialties found that Canadian patients wait an average of 11 weeks from a specialist consultation to treatment. This is more than three weeks longer than what physicians consider clinically reasonable. When doctors make referrals, they are not aware of the wait times at various medical testing facilities such as MRI’s. They may also not know where to send patients for specific types of test such as a doppler exam. This is an inefficient use of resources and has potential health consequences to patients. Health Priorities is an information company that uses a linked database to maximize the utilization of our medical resources by connecting patients, doctors, hospitals, clinics and other medical facilities.
