Hallway Health Care: A System Under Strain

Hallway Health Care: A System Under Strain

Premier’s Council on Improving Healthcare and Ending Hallway Medicine Releases First Report

Special Advisor and Chair of the Council Dr. Rueben Devlin. “This report is a first step in advising the government on how to transform Ontario’s health care system.” Highlights:

  • Difficulty navigating the health care system and long wait times have a negative impact on patients’ health and on family, provider and caregiver well-being.
  • The system is already facing capacity pressures and it does not have the appropriate mix of services, beds or digital tools to be ready for the expected increase in complex care needs.
  • More effective coordination at the system level and at the point-of-care would make the system more efficient and achieve better value for taxpayer money.
