The November Edition of Healthcare Management Forum features an article on Improving Access to Health Services in Canada by Dr. David Urbach - Surgeon‐in‐Chief at Women's College Hospital in Toronto. Hear how the ideas in this article are being implemented and discuss how you can action these practices in your local environment. This new series of sessions is being developed to bring to life the great ideas and practices presented in CCHL's journal and consider how we can lean on each other to advance great ideas. This will be presented as an in-person session and webinar.

Article Abstract:
The Commonwealth Fund 2017 report ranked Canada’s healthcare system low in access to care and last among all 11 counties studied in terms of timeliness of care. While long wait times for certain elective surgical procedures appear to be emblematic of Canadian Medicare, they are not inevitable. Wait times could be improved by focusing on public awareness and measurement of wait times and improving the appropriateness, efficiency (eg, with implementation of single-entry models for surgical referrals and greater use of ambulatory surgery), and productivity of surgical care (eg, by activity-based funding for surgical procedures and by reducing the cost of perioperative care). Ideas on how physician leaders can build on recent accomplishments are provided. Link for the article: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/0840470418776995
